Pence and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price are scheduled to visit Frame USA in the suburb of Cincinnati for a small-business listening session and speech, according to a White House announcement of the event. The group will hear from both local businesses and Dan Regenold, the CEO of Frame USA. The small business makes frames for posters, pictures and art work.

Pence is expected to “hold a listening session with small-business leaders and then deliver remarks at a small business about the president’s agenda, including plans to repeal and replace Obamacare," according to a spokesman, and he will also participate in a tour of the company before finishing with formal remarks at 12:30.

The company was founded in 1982 in Maryland as a small art and print retailer, and expanded to southwest Ohio. Frame USA moved its manufacturing, distribution and other operations to Springdale in 1990, according to its website.
