For Sabrina Kucevic, Westchester’s hottest new directory site began during a search for soccer equipment. “I became fed up when I traveled to Connecticut searching for a soccer shop, only to discover a few weeks later that there was one in New Rochelle,” shares Kucevic, who adds that the owner of the shop decided against online marketing due to its costs. “I wondered how many other small businesses face this same dilemma, and that’s when I decided to create one platform for all of the county where every small business has the opportunity to be discovered.”This one platform is 914 Insider, a directory website aimed at pairing consumers with Westchester’s small businesses. “914 Insider’s mission is to create an easy option for residents to quickly and easily find local small businesses providing the services or products they are searching for, while supporting those businesses by offering an advertising option that is totally free,” explains Kucevic.
