Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 22, 2016
SOLDIERFIT, a military-inspired fitness franchise based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was named a winner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's DREAM BIG Blue Ribbon Small Business Awards®, which recognizes 100 companies for their success and their contributions to America’s economic growth and vitality.
For the past 10 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. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is honoring SOLDIERFIT for exemplifying the strong American values of hard work, innovation, persistence, and entrepreneurship.
Winners were selected from a record number of applicants from across the nation. They were judged on strategic planning, employee development, customer service, and community involvement.
“Small businesses across America today face more economic and regulatory hurdles than ever before, but each of these outstanding companies is rising to the challenge,” said U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue. “These Blue Ribbon Award winners have worked hard, taken risks, and achieved success, helping strengthen their communities and local economies.”
On March 9, the Chamber will announce seven regional finalists from among this year’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners. All of this year’s winners will be honored at the 12th annual America’s Small Business Summit, which will take place June 13-15 in Washington, D.C. During the summit, one regional finalist will receive the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Sam’s Club®, and a $10,000 cash prize courtesy of the U.S. Chamber.
All Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which recognizes one business that has found notable success in the eyes of its community. The winner of that award will be decided through online public voting taking place February 18 through March 4.
