The city of Northglenn is preparing to host its second annual Business Appreciation Breakfast and is seeking nominations for People’s Choice Award.
The theme for this year’s breakfast is “Building Northglenn Together,” and will be from 7 to 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Ramada Plaza & Conference Center, 10 E. 120th Ave.
“This event serves as a way to recognize our existing businesses for their investments and positive impacts they are making in our community,” said Debbie Tuttle, the city’s economic development manager. “Our goal is to develop a positive business climate and build a solid support system for our companies to thrive and be successful.”
The city is seeking nominations for the Business People’s Choice Award, a new addition to the event.
“We wanted to provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved with the award process,” Tuttle said. “There is no major criteria or nomination category like the other awards. People just vote for their personal favorite business that has the best product or service and overall highest customer service.”
Anyone can vote for his or her favorite Northglenn business at www.northglenn.org/ businessvote by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27.
The other award categories include Outstanding Small Business, Outstanding Large Business, Outstanding Business Longevity, Outstanding Business Community Impact and Home Based Business — and criteria to win those awards are based on business dedication, innovation, leadership, growth, stability, customer service, entrepreneurial spirit and community commitment and involvement.
The city will also recognize a Northglenn student for his or her demonstration of business leadership and entrepreneurship with the Young Entrepreneur Award.
“Our students are the future workforce, and we want to encourage them to reach for their dreams,” Tuttle said. “This provides a chance to be recognized for their accomplishments, motivate them to take their ideas to the next level, and to network and learn from other business success stories. Also, being recognized with this award is impressive on a resume or college application.”
This year’s theme, “Building Northglenn Together,” is about the new projects that are currently underway or are soon to start. These projects include the new Walmart Neighborhood Market, which is being built at the Garland Center; the Webster Lake Promenade — the 10-acre commercial development at 120th Avenue and Grant Street; and expansions for Nationwide Fabrication and TH Automotive.
