2016 Family Business Awards

Seattle Business magazine searched for family businesses within Washington state that set the standard for excellence and success. Family-owned and family-operated businesses are unique and we want to recognize and celebrate outstanding achievements. Quality, consistency and flexibility are terms that often rise to the top of descriptions for the honorees in Seattle Business magazine's Family Business Awards program. Most of these companies have at least three generations of family ownership, while some carry a legacy stretching back five generations or more. A common thread among all of them: growing the business while serving their communities and paying close attention to the personal touch in customer service.
