2014 Small Business Awards

by Editorial Staff--South Jersey Biz

It’s no secret South Jersey is a great place to grow your business. From its ideal location to its access to various modes of transportation and everything in between, it’s no surprise that a number of businesses have decided to call our area home. And while big businesses in the area seem to have set the course for success, there are just as many small businesses that have been able to flourish in this part of the state. To recognize the efforts these small businesses have put into making South Jersey so great, we present to you the 30 recipients of our first-ever Small Business Awards. These businesses go above and beyond to give their customers the best services available, and we commend them on their efforts. From a law firm to an energy expert, these companies are setting the standard for small businesses in our area.
