GREEN BAY (WFRV) There's no doubt that Georgia Pacific is a big business in Northeast Wisconsin. And these shops along Broadway are smaller players. But Advance Business Center officials say the Small Business Administration has it's own view.
"It's five-hundred or less for a small business. And over the past several years that's been debated," said Ryan Kauft, who works with small business tenants at the center.

"We're a team of eight here. So very small and we have a very niche market. Though we actually operate in 16 countries," said Kevin Scholz, President of DVM Connexx.
