*This is the app you conscious shoppers have all been waiting for.

Find the local black-owned businesses on your iPhone with Around the Way.

Developed via a partnership between a New York-based company and Washington, D.C.-based mobile app development firm, the new tool locates the nearest black-owned businesses, no matter where you are around the country.

“Around the Way is our attempt at doing what other ethnic and racial groups have been doing for a long time,” said Eric Hamilton, chief marketing officer and Around the Way co-founder.

It’s still in the beginning stages as more business owners add their establishments through the company’s website: www.aroundthewayapp.com.
