PBA’s Kendyl Sul­li­van up­dates read­ers on busi­ness as­so­ci­a­tion ac­tiv­i­ties.

Franklin County News - - BUSINESS -

You will have seen the cover­age from the 2017 Pukekohe Busi­ness Awards in the Franklin County News and I can con­firm it was an amaz­ing night.

The awards were at­tended by over 400 peo­ple from the busi­ness com­mu­nity all dressed in their finest. MC Jeremy Elwood was a fan­tas­tic en­ter­tainer, and all the nom­i­nees were ex­tremely gra­cious and sup­port­ive.

Judg­ing was based on a mys­tery shop­per’s re­port, and sub­mis­sions made by busi­nesses. Sub­mis­sions were re­quired to an­swer four ques­tions re­lat­ing to the busi­nesses his­tory, mar­ket­ing, cus­tomer ser­vice and com­mu­nity sup­port. The sub­mis­sions showed a huge amount of ef­fort and cre­ativ­ity and the judges re­marked that every year gets more dif­fi­cult as im­prove­ments con­tinue to amaze them. It is re­ally tough to judge!

There were 12814 votes re­ceived for the Peo­ple’s Choice Award up from 6900 in 2016.

We want to thank all the fi­nal­ists for the hard work and en­thu­si­asm they showed. Thank you also, to the pub­lic that voted for peo­ple’s choice and our spon­sors, in­clud­ing our me­dia part­ner Franklin County News.
