The Douglas County Chamber and Douglas County Sentinel are pleased to announce the 2018 Small Businesses of Excellence. These twelve businesses are recognized for successful operations and growth as well as service in the community. The Small Business of Excellence Awards were held on July 17th at the GreyStone Power Luncheon sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
The Chamber is proud to recognize the important role that small businesses play in Douglas County and its economy. They recognize the work of the Small Business Committee who created the Small Businesses of Excellence designation from what was previously the Small Business of the Quarter Awards. The twelve recipients are then eligible for the Small Business of the Year Award given at the Winter Ball in February.
In the eighth year of offering the Small Businesses of Excellence, the Chamber received over 40 nominations for Chamber member businesses. After being nominated by the community and their peers, each company completed a thorough application covering company information, growth, community involvement, and overcoming adversity, among other criteria. An independent panel of judges composed of business professionals and community leaders reviewed the applications, met to discuss their findings and made their selections.
