They’re looking for businesses that provide consistent products or services, promote community events and encourage employees to be involved. To qualify, nominees must have been in business for at least three years and be a member of the Starke County Chamber of Commerce. Chamber director Debbie Mix says there are plenty of businesses fitting those criteria, but they need people to nominate them. She also says people can nominate their own businesses.
You can nominate a business by downloading this form, or you can pick it up at the Starke County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center Office in Knox.
Mix says it’s a good opportunity for businesses, “The winning business will receive recognition at the annual Starke County Chamber Dinner, which will be in November, and we just ask that you nominate the business you feel best meets the criteria and express your reason why you think they should be named the 2016 Starke County Business of the Year.”
The deadline to submit nominations is this coming Monday, September 21.
