Town Spotlights

Georgetown’s struggling shrimping industry


After receiving 14,000 nominations for towns to put in the spotlight during season two of “Small Business Revolution – Main Street,” we hit the road to visit eight inspiring towns that made our short list of potential finalists. Throughout summer, we’re looking back and sharing the stories of what made each town special – including guest posts from local leaders and some profiles of businesses in these communities. This is the second post, in our weeklong focus on Georgetown, South Carolina.

Georgetown is a charming small town nestled between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This small town has everything you would love about living on the coast, including fresh, locally caught shrimp.

However, in recent years the shrimping industry has been greatly affected by the price of imported shrimp. Cotton Williams, owner of Independent Seafood, takes some time to talk with Amanda Brinkman, chief brand and communications officer at Deluxe, to share his story about the challenges he has faced and what he is looking forward to in the years ahead.
