WSFS Bank’s annual 2022 Small Business Trends study found that small businesses are optimistic in their ability to keep revenues at their current pace or even increase them in the next year despite economic woes and strains on their costs.
The study, which surveyed 500 Mid-Atlantic small businesses, measured owner/operators’ outlook on the economy, the impact of inflation and other stressors on their businesses, and their banking relationships and lending needs.

Respondents were surveyed from September 23 – November 1, 2022, with a margin of error of +/- 4.47 percent.
