The USCA “Best of Local Business” Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year, the USCA identifies companies that it believes have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.
“It is very meaningful to be recognized as a contributing entrepreneur in my home town, knowing my organization is making a positive difference,” said Laurie Edwards-Tate, MS, President and Founder of At Your Home Familycare.
“It is gratifying to know that our values, mission, and services are well-received. It is exciting to be honored as a successful business person with the knowledge that I may serve as an example to others, especially other women. But mostly, it is amazing to me to know that the services my organization provides are truly helping others,” added Edwards-Tate.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2009 USCA Award Program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USCA and data provided by third parties.
