This year’s winners were selected from a record number of applicants across the nation, and each demonstrates exceptional business practices in areas including strategic planning, employee development, community involvement, and customer service.

“As the business community has worked hard to do its part in moving the country forward economically, small businesses have continued to be the driving force responsible for much of our progress,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J.

All Blue Ribbon winners are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which will be decided through online public voting February 19 – 28.

“The Chamber is proud to honor these outstanding small businesses for their contributions to the country’s economic recovery and continued hard work in their communities,” Donohue continued. “They represent the creativity, the determination, and the resilience of the U.S. business community and are examples of the enormous potential of businesses and employees across the country.”

A complete list of this year’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners is available here.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

Wedding Catering In Irving/Dallas

Glory House Catering can provide your Irving or Dallas wedding catering and ensure that your special day is as wonderful as your dreams.

FRIENDLY customer service is important when navigating through the planning process for your BIG DAY!

Finding an Irving or Dallas wedding catering company should not be something that you leave to chance. After all, your wedding should be the most wonderful, memorable day of your life. Choosing a company based on price alone, or on any other single criterion will result in a less than spectacular day. What should you look for in a catering company? What makes a viable choice?

Your wedding reception should include the menu items that you want, and reflect the elegance and flair of your wedding. Therefore, you should seek out a wedding catering company that has experience and expertise in creating custom menus. However, you should also ensure that the company is able meet with you and go over all the details of the event. Doing so will ensure that your guests (and you) are able to enjoy a wonderful meal during your reception.

Of course, there are other items that your choice in catering companies should include.  You want to make sure your caterer has experience and a good reputation.  Check out reviews and ask for references to make sure you get good feedback from previous clients.  Ask for a tasting.  Many caterers charge for tastings, but some do not.  Glory House Catering offers a free tasting for two guests.  Additional guests are charged $15 each to join the tasting.  This is a small price to pay to make sure you love the food before you hire the caterer.

In addition, you should make sure that the Irving or Dallas wedding catering company you choose is able to provide tables, chairs, serving dishes, plates, glasses and any other items you will need for your guests to use. This will ensure that you or your wedding planner does not have to worry about it and also ensures that all the items will match. Choosing a catering company that does not provide equipment will force you to make arrangements for these items, which can simply add even more headache to your big day.  A caterer should be able to walk you walk you through all the rentals you will need.

In some cases, you might want to choose a catering company that offers a wedding venue, as well. This allows you to have your wedding and reception at the same location. For instance, you might decide to have your wedding on site, and the company will be able to provide archways, guest seating and even candle stands for your unity candle and more. You will find that this is very convenient and, with the right location, can lend your wedding an elegant flair.

Beautiful Event at Glory House

Your final consideration should be event setup and cleanup afterward. While chances are good that you will not have to do this personally, choosing a company that does it on your behalf will spare friends and family the need to do it.

Glory House Receptions can provide for your Irving or Dallas wedding catering needs and offers an amazing venue right in the heart of historical downtown. Your wedding and reception will be a delightful event, filled with beauty and joy.
