    A WORD FROM A PAST AWARD RECIPIENT:
    “As a small business owner in Westerville, we found this award as Business of the Year for under 50 employees reinforced our belief that Westerville is supportive of local businesses.  We have patients that specifically sought us out for their services knowing we had been awarded as the Chamber’s Business of the Year.  Our existing customers could not have been prouder of the accomplishment.  Westerville loves to embrace them.  Collectively, we would encourage any business to apply or customers to nominate their favorite business for these awards."

    - Dr. K, Northstar Family Dental, 2016 Small Business of the Year
