The Knoxville Chamber congratulates four member companies on their selection as 2016 U.S. Chamber of Commerce Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners. This program recognizes companies for their success, innovation, and contributions to economic growth and free enterprise.

The winners — All Occasion Catering, All Occasions Party Rentals, Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation, and Proton Power, Inc.— were chosen from a record number of nationwide applicants and will be honored in June at the 2016 America’s Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C. 

“Once again, we are incredibly proud of our member companies that have received this national recognition,” said Mike Edwards, president and CEO of the Knoxville Chamber. “They are excellent examples of the small businesses in operation across Innovation Valley, and we are honored to have them represent our region.”

The four winners are now eligible for the Dream Big Small Business of the Year Award. On March 9, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will announce seven regional finalists chosen from this year’s 100 Blue Ribbon Award winners and will present the winner with a $10,000 cash prize during the 2016 summit. 

The winners are also eligible for the U.S Chamber of Commerce Community Excellence Award, which recognizes a business that has demonstrated considerable commitment supporting its local community. The winner will be decided through online public voting from Feb. 17 through March 4 and will also be announced during this year’s summit.

The Knoxville Chamber submitted 11 applications from past Pinnacle Business Award winners.
