We are proud and honored to announce that the Sitka Food Co-op has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club.
The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses, two in every state and the District of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses. Each state winner will be awarded a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense-paid trip to a training and networking event in Dallas, TX, SCORE mentoring and publicity throughout the year. Each Champion is also eligible for one of three $25,000 grand prizes.
We are honored to have been chosen for this award. When we began our business in 2011, our dream was to provide wholesome and natural foods and products to our community through a cooperative process/organization.
The prizes, training, publicity and SCORE mentoring we have been awarded will help us take our business to the next level, and to help us better serve our community. We look forward to attending the training event in Dallas and will be sure to let you know how it and the rest of the year goes.
