Everyone has a favorite small business they love to frequent. This year, we’ve picked 17 of our favorites to honor in our annual Small Business Awards story. These organizations were selected after careful review, from among a pool of more than 150 applicants, in the categories of General Excellence, Outstanding Minority-Owned Small Business, Outstanding Nonprofit, and Outstanding Philanthropic Small Business. To qualify, each organization must have fewer than 50 employees, have been in operation for at least two years, and maintain a physical location in Westchester. Turn the pages to see why we were captivated by their stories.
