The North Texas Black Owned Business Directory (BBD) was initially conceived in July 2013 in Denton, Texas.

The BBD was initially founded as the Texas Diversity Business Network (DBN). The DBN was been created to be a resource hub; a place where people can connect with an diverse array of urban businesses, business professionals and resources. Our goal has been to create a place where people could connect with diverse businesses across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. However, the concept did not appear to generate much interest. The concept was met with mixed reactions at best.

However, being someone who migrated to Denton, Texas from Michigan, I often wondered where the Black owned businesses and Black business community resided. So whenever I ran across a resource online, I began to save them to spread sheets, thus the beginnings of the Black Business Directory. It is my goal to build this site into a very powerful resource for people to use worldwide.

As we continue to grow & improve, we would like to receive your feedback to aid us in the process. Feel free to contact us at northtexasbbd@gmail.com.
