Yesterday, Evan Coulter and I attended the Arvada Economic Development Association (AEDA) 20th annual Business Appreciation Awards Breakfast. Held at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, the “What’s Your Big Idea, Arvada?" event honored leading Arvada businesses.
Evan and I enjoyed chatting with some of the 200 attendees. Several awards were presented in various categories. The honorees were:
• Retailer of the Year: Fuzzy’s Taco Shop
• Employer under 50 Employees: Wadsworth Control Systems
• Employer over 50 Employees: Bennett’s Bar-b-que
Awards of Distinction
Lloyd J. King Entrepreneurial Spirit Award
Heidi Hostetter and Alicia Svaldi
Manley Gray Distinguished Service Award
It was a pleasure to attend the breakfast, and it brought back fond memories of last year's event where UCEC was honored with an award for Employer under 50 Employees.
UCEC is a proud member of the Arvada business community and we salute this year's award winners!
Mark Inboden is President and CEO of UCEC.
