WEB EXCLUSIVE What better time to support all the local Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI)-owned businesses in the Triangle than AAPI Heritage Month! In the past 10 years, the Asian population in North Carolina has grown by over 40%, and with that increase, there’s been a steady stream of AAPI-owned businesses popping up in the area—and we are here for it. This month (and beyond), we encourage you to support one (or all!) of the following AAPI-owned businesses. And if we’ve missed one of your faves, let us know!
