Earlier this month, we asked members of the Maywood and Bellwood Chambers of Commerce, in addition to village officials in Maywood and Bellwood to nominate small businesses who deserve our inaugural Small Business of the Month Award for July.
The three businesses that merited the most robust response from nominators are the ones that were then selected for this public voting round, where readers are invited to vote on a business among the three finalists. Readers should only vote once but shouldn’t hesitate to share this poll with their friends, neighbors, associates, colleagues and loved ones. Voting is open from July 12 until July 17.
The winner of the first VFP Small Business of the Month Award will be announced on July 18 and honored at a small business reception held July 19 at Cintas Uniform Services (see flyer below). The winner will receive some hardware commemorating their designation as Business of the Month, along with a feature article and free digital and print advertising.
We created this award as a way of acknowledging the wonderful, often unsung, local businesses that are doing great work in our communities. Eventually, (hopefully as soon as next month), we will expand nominations to include businesses in Broadview and Melrose Park.
