The Kansas Department of Commerce announced 26 Regional Business of Excellence Award winners and 63 Merit Award winners as a part of the 2016 business Appreciation Month that took place in June. Kansas businesses are recognized for the contribution made to their communities and the state economy.
“Business Appreciation Month gives the Commerce Department the opportunity to show its support, recognition and gratitude for the businesses who work hard to excel in the state of Kansas,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Antonio Soave. “The 89 businesses that have been selected as winners of the 2016 Business Appreciation Month represent the dedication of Kansas workers, the resounding infrastructure that these businesses are built on and the level of support created by the state of Kansas, for every type of business.”
Two Garnett businesses were selected among the 26 regional winners: Guest Home Estates VII and Sandra's Quick Stop.
All of these award recipients were nominated by the City of Garnett, recognizing their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to Garnett and the surrounding area.
