Meehle Law was honored to be nominated for the Small Business of the Year 2016 at the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Small Business Week Awards held Wednesday, May 4, 2016, at the Heathrow Country Club in recognition of National Small Business Week.
According to Chamber President/CEO Frank S. Hale, “Shortly before his death in 1963 President John Kennedy signed a bill to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of America’s small businesses. Each year since then the US Small Business Administration has recognized Small Business Week. The Chamber is pleased to join the national celebration by recognizing the accomplishments of hard working small business owners in Sanford and Seminole and Volusia Counties at the Chamber’s Small Business Awards Breakfast.”
Chamber Small Business Committee Chairwoman Rhonda Smith said, “Small business development and entrepreneurism are key components of today’s economy, as is evidenced by small business growth in our communities and the millions more developing in communities across the country.”
The ceremony honored local businesses that were nominated based on job creation, product or service innovation, staying power, response to adversity, contribution to the community’s economic well-being and more.
“We were thrilled to be among the more than 180 small businesses nominated,” said Suzanne Meehle, attorney at Meehle Law. “These small business owners are our clients, friends, and community. We are humbled to have been mentioned. Congratulations to the winners of this prestigious award!”
