Winslow Homes Wins Best Small Biz from the Greater Franklin Chamber

August 18, 2018 2:29 pm

Winslow Homes now has another honor to add to our growing list of awards and recognition. Earlier this year, Winslow Homes was proud to be named the recipient of the 2017 “Small Business of the Year” award. This award, presented annually by the Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, is given to a business that distinguishes itself by:

  • Being actively involved in Chamber events.
  • Reflecting the goals of the Chamber.
  • Making best use of Chamber programs and resources.
  • Showing entrepreneurial qualities.
  • Exhibiting potential for growth and expansion.
  • Promoting itself in a professional manner.

That’s a tall order, but after all the factors were considered and the data crunched, Winslow Homes came out on top! The Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce held its 41st Annual Banquet and Meeting Thursday, January 19, 2018, and presented us with the award. In addition to this and other awards that were given, this yearly meeting allows the Chamber an opportunity to look back on the previous year, set goals for the current year and celebrate the community.

At the banquet, it was a lively time with former NFL player Jason Brown there to give the keynote address. Along with a large crowd of other local business people, Matthew Winslow was present to accept the award on behalf of the entire company. Roger Melvin of Toney Ace Hardware presented the “2017 Small Business of the Year” award and congratulated Matthew and Winslow Homes on their accomplishment. Roger and his hardware store won the award in 2016, so it was a passing of the torch from one year to the next.

This is another example of how our hard work and attention to detail continue to pay off. Winslow Homes is dedicated to investing in community organizations like the Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and improving the areas in which we do business. We want to improve these areas not just by building beautiful luxury custom homes, but also by making connections with those who are putting together the big picture vision of where we are all headed together.

If you are interested in having a custom home built in the northern and western Triangle areas, (including Wake Forest, Wendell, Knightdale, Oxford, Youngsville, and Rolesville) why not choose a company that is trusted and celebrated by the community?
