Each year, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Chicago and Northern Illinois recognizes a handful of local businesses for their commitment to marketplace trust, ethics, and excellence. Steve Bernas, president and CEO of the BBB says, “The Torch Award is the premier award the BBB can present to a company. While the BBB seal is “The Sign of a Better Business,” Torch Award winners demonstrate extraordinary ethical standards of trust and behavior. These companies represent the highest level of dedication to four key attributes including character, culture, customers, and community.”
We’re pleased to announce that in December 2022, we won the 2022 BBB Torch Award for Ethics! We take pride in acting ethically and are pleased that our approach to business and customer service was recognized by this prestigious institution.
