Bigger Better Business

Bigger and Better Business became the first national program of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. It was first introduced at the Tenth Anniversary Conclave, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (December 1924). When Bigger and Better Business was adopted as a national program, special emphasis was placed on encouraging and promoting Negro businesses. At its inception, the program sought to encourage Negro businesses to improve their business acumen, efficiency and service to the public, to be competitive with other businesses.

Support. Growth. Success

Current Goal:
Black Spend Initiative

At Phi Beta Sigma (PBS) - Gulf Coast Region, we are dedicated to supporting and elevating Black Business in the community. We believe that every dollar spent on a Black business is an investment in the community, and that's why we actively encourage our members and the wider community to do the same. We provide a range of resources and support systems to help Black businesses succeed in the region. Join us today in supporting these important community stakeholders!


Members of the various chapters across the Gulf Coast Region have spent over $660,000 on Black owned businesses. These businesses range from real estate to apparel to fine dining. The aim is to spend over $1 million dollars on Black owned businesses.
