2017 City of Melton Business Excellence Awards
On the 1st September the 2017 City of Melton Business Excellence Awards took place at Tabcorp Park in Melton South. The beginning of Spring marks new opportunities and growth, so a significant time to celebrate and recognize businesses that excelled in product and service delivery in the past year. With a three-course dinner, live band and a buzzing, excited atmosphere, the room was full of up-and-coming businesses, sponsors and supporters of the Melton region. The local Mayor, Cr Sophie Ramsey warmly opened the Awards and the MC entertained the audience with magic tricks and jokes throughout the evening.
Why would a business enter the Awards? As previous Awards winner George from Eyeclarity shares, “it gives local businesses a sense of achievement, knowing your business is doing well and is on track…especially when you’re a local business and not a chain”. Other advice given out on the night was to give consistent quality service and be kind to everyone, whether they be customer yet or not.
The winners of 2017 are:
- Cat Napping Suburban Retreat
- Studio of Success Beauty Centre
- Hi Voltage Karts
- Monte’s Kitchen Cabinets
- My Diffability Australia
- Discovering Strength
- Melton Music
- Fixwell Smash Repairs
2017 Business of the Year Award was won by Cat Napping Suburban Retreat in Caroline Springs. Founder Ebony graciously accepted the award, sharing “the toughest part was losing my dad eight months ago…it was my amazing team who got me through it, helping with 10-12 hour days. This award helps my business because internally, it gives our team a greater purpose. Externally, our clients want to be associated with the best”.
