Five Boise Chamber Members Awarded U.S. Chamber's 2015 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has named Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce members Auction Frogs, LLC, CTR - Cleanup & Total Restoration, Payette Brewing Company, Telaya Wine Company, and Thornton Oliver Keller Real Estate as winners of their 2015 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award. The Boise Metro Chamber nominated and sponsored these companies, along with several other winners and finalists of the Chamber's 2014 Small Business of the Year & Chamber Excellence Awards, for this award.
 
The U.S. Chamber's annual program recognizes companies for their dedication to the principles of free enterprise and contributions to restoring jobs and supporting economic growth. These companies were selected from applicants across the nation for demonstrating exceptional business practices in areas including strategic planning, employee development, community involvement, and customer service.
 
All Blue Ribbon winners are also eligible for the U.S. Chamber's Community Excellence Award, part of the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Awards Program. The Community Excellence Award is designed to highlight a business that has found success in the eyes of its community, generously giving of its time, resources, and expertise. The business that receives the most votes between February 19 and March 4 will be presented with the Community Excellence Award at America's Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C in June.  The Boise Chamber is encouraging the community to support these businesses in the voting, which you can do online by clicking here.
