The 100 Best in Small Business

Feb 8, 2013

What do a small town pharmacy, an animal hospital, and a local ice cream shop have in common? They are three of the top 100 small businesses named today as 2013 Blue Ribbon Award® winners, part of the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Sam’s Club®.   

For the past 8 years, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been scouting the country for the best in business and honoring leading companies with this prestigious award.

Through a rigorous evaluation of business strategy, customer service, employee development, community involvement, and entrepreneurship, these top 100 winners represent small businesses and entrepreneurs who are working each day to strengthen our economy and create much-needed American jobs.

We applaud our 2013 winners—those who dare to DREAM BIG, take risks, accomplish great things, live a full life, and never give up.

Show your support for one of these outstanding Blue Ribbon Award® recipients and celebrate their commitment to their community by voting for their business to win the 2013 Community Excellence Award. Voting will be held from February 8 – February 22.

All award winners will be recognized at America’s Small Business Summit, April 29 – May 1. Seven of these recipients will be chosen as regional finalists, announced on February 15.
