Each nominated business has made a significant impact in a variety of areas including: industry achievement, revenue growth, creative marketing endeavors, impeccable customer service, innovative products and/company wide community involvement. Through their efforts and success in 2011, they’ve not only gained attention for themselves, but for the entire Maplewood business community.

The winner of 2011 Business of the Year Award will be determined by a selection committee, however, one vote among the selection committee belongs to the Maplewood Chamber of Commerce Membership.  To cast your vote for the 2011 Business of the Year, click here after reviewing the nominations below.  The winner announced the first week in January, and  honored at the Chamber Annual Meeting/1st Quarter luncheon on January 24.
