Jefferson Chamber Members Selected As 2015 U.S. Chamber Blue Ribbon Award Winners



WASHINGTON, D.C. – Strategic Planning Associates, LLC, in Metairie, and Cook Me Somethin' Mister, in New Orleans, have been selected as 2015 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award Winners for their success, innovation, and contributions to economic growth and free enterprise.
         One hundred winners were selected from a record number of applicants from communities across the nation and evaluated in four key areas including strategic planning, employee development, community involvement, and customer service.
         “While our economy still struggles to reach its full potential, small businesses like our Blue Ribbon Award winners have continued to act as examples of the resilience, ingenuity and opportunity at work in the free enterprise system,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said. “Times can be tough, but these businesses have proven that they can be too. And by taking risks, watching out for their employees, and giving back to their communities, they’ve shown that success is achievable.”
         The seven regional finalists will be announced on March 18 and the overall winner will be announced at the 11th annual America’s Small Business Summit, taking place June 8 – 10 in Washington, D.C.
         All Blue Ribbon Award winners are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which recognizes one business that has found notable success in the eyes of its community, generously giving of its time, resources and expertise. The winner will be decided through online public voting between February 19 and March 4.
