Finalists Will Be Voted On By The Public; Winner Gets $10,000 To Put Toward Their Business Goals And Objectives
Atlanta, GA (September 17, 2018) – Rubicon, a leader in providing waste, recycling, and smart city solutions to businesses and governments, today announced it has launched its second annual search to find the Best Small Business in America.
Rubicon is asking all small businesses to tell them what differentiates them from the rest, how are they using business as a force for social or environmental good. Businesses will be encouraged to list the challenges they’ve faced and overcome to make the business successful as well as socially and environmentally conscious.
Rubicon works with its small business customers across the United States to find new efficiencies and cost savings in their waste streams and to develop new and innovative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle materials and has established the RUBICONMethod, a six-step system to help businesses of all sizes start down the path of a zero waste program.
“Small businesses are the heartbeat of America and thrive on overcoming challenges and bringing new ideas in sustainability and innovation to the forefront,” said David Rachelson, Vice President of Sustainability at Rubicon.
“At Rubicon, we are thrilled to launch our search again for the Best Small Business in America, and the amazing success stories from companies that strive not only for financial success but also to make a difference in the world.”
The 2017 Best Small Business in America winner, Sugar Beet Co-Op from Chicago, used their winning prize to help offset some of the healthcare and insurance costs for their employees. Leaders from Rubicon will judge the entries along with executives from Toast, the fastest-growing restaurant management platform in the U.S.; and MINDBODY, the leading technology platform for the fitness, wellness and beauty services industries.
On November 5, judges from Rubicon, Toast, and MINDBODY will unveil the finalists for public voting. The winner will be announced on Small Business Saturday, November 24, 2018.
Submissions can be made online here.
The contest is open to all businesses in the continental United States who have no more than 200 employees have at least one physical storefront. Full Terms and Conditions can be found here.
