Three Area Companies Receive BBB Torch Awards
The Better Business Bureau held its annual Marketplace Ethics award ceremony at the West Lake Country Club yesterday afternoon. In the small business category, Evans Animal Hospital was given the award. Recently, they were accredited for the 25th straight year with a National Animal Association. They are located on Evans To Locks Road.
Advanced Services For Pest Control won in the medium sized company grouping. They formed in 1986 and have grown each year in revenue, staff, and services to the community. Part of the secret to their success is creating a family friendly lifestyle and training opportunities.
Goodwill won the BBB Torch Award for a larger sized company beating out E-Z GO and Doctors Hospital for the honor. They received their award for their reinvestment into creating jobs for the community. In 2012, they began taking students for Helms College and then opened Edgar’s Grille on the same campus that has a thrift store, café, and job training area.
Buzz on Biz founder Neil Gordon was on hand for the awards and took pride in knowing that all three winners are Buzz on Biz business partners.
