The Tasty Pear is the Peoples Choice!!

At the recent 2016 CEBA Business Awards The Tasty Pear in Hawaiian Bassendean Shopping Centre was the surprise winner of the peoples choice award!  That is, it was a surprise for the three proud owners Gill, Chantel and Kate but to many others the Tasty Pear was the obvious winner and well deserved!

They then went on to the Best Start-Up Award as well!

The awards evening was a terrific relaxed cocktail event where 80 people gathered to share stories and celebrate terrific achievements and results. The diverse range of entries and winners illustrated so well the potential and possibilities our region holds.

The overall winner went to Jade Lewis & Friends. This not-for-profit organisation has developed a range of programs to counter drug addiction amongst teenagers, female offenders, school age kids and family programs as well.

Awards Cocktail Evening

business-awards-celebrateThose business awards that we’ve been promoting over the last few weeks reach their conclusion on Friday 25 November.

The judges will have done their judging and at a Cocktail evening at The Rise in Maylands they’ll be announcing the winners under the 8 categories: Best Service Based Business, Best Retail Business, Best Franchise Business, Best Start-up (New) Business, Best Home Based Business, Best Commercial Enterprise, Best Environmentally Sustainable Business, Best Community Not-for-Profit Organisation

And who from Bassendean will pick up an award?  You’ll have to come along and find out!

But as we have maintained all along, all entries in the awards are winners regardless of whether they pick up the gong on the night.

Tackling all those questions can be a little bit sticky, like being able to write an overview of your business, thinking about business planning, describing your target market, what’s your customer service like and how do you look after your staff,  automatically put you and your business ahead of many competitors who neglect to ask themselves the same questions.  Time and again we hear operators saying the process its self was the most rewarding!

But winning does have its own unique rewards too. Having a trophy to display at home or in the shop is pretty cool plus extra publicity is provided through a link up with all the other Business Associations and Chambers in the eastern metro region and jointly featuring the finest businesses in the EMRC Business Exemplar Project.
