Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
On Friday evening, April 26, 2013, AlphaGraphics Mesa on Baseline Road won the prestigious Mesa Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year Award. AlphaGraphics Mesa is one of the three AlphaGraphics centers owned by Steve Adams.
Earlier this year, Steve’s other two centers have been honored by both the Tempe Chamber of Commerce and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. AlphaGraphics Tempe on Elliot Rd. received the Tempe Chamber’s Business Excellence Award and Steve Adams, representing AlphaGraphics Phoenix – Northwest Valley won the Glendale Chamber’s Volunteer of the Year Award.
“We are honored to hold these three awards for the year from these great Chambers of Commerce. I do believe that these awards reflect the great year we had in 2012 and our dedication to service in our communities," said Steve Adams. "The Mesa and Tempe Chamber awards also reflect our dedication to our employees and to our customers. The Glendale Chamber award reflects the Executive Committee’s efforts to help the Glendale Chamber survive the hard economic period we just went through.” Steve has served as the Glendale Chamber’s Treasurer for the last two years.
Steve Adams started AlphaGraphics Mesa on Baseline Rd. franchise in 1990 in downtown Mesa. In 1997, he started AlphaGraphics Tempe on Elliot Rd. franchise and, in 2006, he purchased the struggling AlphaGraphics Phoenix – Northwest Valley franchise. “We have been able to grow our sales significantly over the years and in 2012, our combined revenues exceeded $4 million, said Steve. This success would not have been possible without the efforts of our managers and our staff. I have been fortunate to have two of my sons, Eric Adams and Danny Adams, work as managers of two of our centers. In addition, we just brought on Craig Henry, a Mesa community leader, as our Sales Manager to help grow our sales going forward.”
