Four Mission businesses nominated for awards

Recipients of Small Business BC Awards will be recognized with the Premier’s Prize in the amount of $1,500 cash.

Four small businesses in Mission have been nominated for the 13th Annual Small Business BC Awards.

The businesses are:

  • Beyond Balanced Books – Best Concept;
  • Rabab Indian Restaurant – Premier’s People’s Choice;
  • Schubert Plumbing & Heating Ltd. – Best Apprentice Training; and
  • Valley Acrylic Bath Ltd. – Best Community Impact and Best Company.

“Small Business BC takes great pride in celebrating entrepreneurs and helping them to become more successful. While individually small, these businesses have a big reputation across Canada and around the world,” said George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC.

“I am delighted to see Mission’s vibrant business community entering the Small Business BC Awards to be recognized for their achievements both locally and globally.”

Recipients of Small Business BC Awards will be recognized with the Premier’s Prize in the amount of $1,500 cash. The winners will also be offered a one-year all-access pass to Small Business BC education resources and experts, and one-on-one business mentorship opportunities with notable advisors from award sponsors.

The contest is open for nominations and voting until Nov. 30. The public is invited to nominate their favourite small businesses for an award.

Nominated business owners will be tasked with gaining as many votes as possible through social media, word of mouth, email or any other means possible.

The businesses with the highest number of votes in each award category will be announced as the top 10 on Dec. 11.

Judges will determine the top five finalists from each award category, announced on Jan. 29. The top five will then be invited to present a 10-minute Dragons’ Den-style pitch to the judges.

The winners of each category will be announced at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony on Feb. 25 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel. For more, visit sbbcawards.ca.
