Franklin County News - - FRONT PAGE -

A record num­ber of busi­nesses will vie for glory at Pukekohe’s show­piece busi­ness awards event.

Last week, lo­cal busi­nesses gath­ered at a nom­i­nees cock­tail evening at ANZ Pukekohe to cel­e­brate be­ing nom­i­nated for the 2017 Pukekohe Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion’s Best in Busi­ness Awards.

PBA busi­ness man­ager Kendyl Sul­li­van said she was ex­cited by the cal­i­bre of nom­i­nees, where a record 61 lo­cal en­ter­prises were nom­i­nated across five cat­e­gories. ‘‘It’s al­ways great to get that pos­i­tive feed­back from cus­tomers about busi­nesses in Pukekohe.’’

This is the sixth edi­tion of the awards. There are five cat­e­gories - Health and Beauty, Re­tail, Man­u­fac­tur­ing and Trade, Hos­pi­tal­ity and Pro­fes­sional Ser­vices. There are also spe­cial awards for Peo­ple’s Choice, Out­stand­ing Sub­mis­sion and Com­mu­nity Recog­ni­tion.

Nom­i­nated busi­nesses will be asked to sub­mit why they de­serve the ti­tle of Best in Busi­ness and judges would be look­ing for cre­ativ­ity and orig­i­nal­ity. The peo­ple of Pukekohe will have their say dur­ing vot­ing, open un­til July 3.

The cat­e­gories will be judged on feed­back from a mys­tery shop- per and the nom­i­nated busi­ness’ sub­mis­sion.

The Pukekohe Best in Busi­ness awards func­tion is on July 29 at the Pukekohe In­dian As­so­ci­a­tion Hall with co­me­dian Jeremy El­wood as MC.
