Business awards season continued Thursday when the Thurston Economic Development Council recognized four businesses with 2015 awards.
The following won awards, and Thurston EDC Executive Director Michael Cade shared his thoughts about each:
Thursday’s event was the 30th anniversary of the business recognition awards. About 20 past winners attended the luncheon, Cade said. The former Olympia Brewery was recognized in the first year of the awards, he said.
Thurston EDC board members and prior winners select the award winners, Cade said.
On Wednesday, the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce announced its green business award winners. Radiance won distinction for its green business practices in the medium-size business category. The small business award went to Salish Sea Organic Liqueurs, a startup distillery in Hawks Prairie. The large business award went to Olympia Federal Savings. The relatively new government award went to the city of Olympia.
