Happy National Entrepreneurs' Day! We're taking the opportunity to celebrate this unofficial holiday to honor local entrepreneurs who are doing amazing things for customers and the economy. Because where would Utah County be without its myriad small business owners?

We wish we could highlight every one of the thousands of entrepreneurs across Utah County — but these 11 local business owners will have to do.
