Last night we were crowned Business of the Year (less than 50 employees) at the at SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards 2019, but that's not all, we scooped the Overall Winner gong too!
"Thrilled to win, especially the second award which was a huge surprise. Great for our team to get the recognition they deserve, and it motivates us to keep improving for our staff, partners, and customers." - Jonathan Custance, Director, Green Custard
The SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards help raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising SMEs - with 20 categories creating almost 100 finalists from across the region.
Delighted to have been named a finalist for the Business of the Year category, we donned our tuxedos and gowns and headed to the stunning Duxford Imperial War Museum for the glitzy ceremony.
On hearing the words "and the winner is ... Green Custard!" we all jumped out of our seats and were totally overwhelmed at winning our category which is awarded to businesses showing outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination. The excitement of the evening didn't end there, we were welcomed back to the stage as it was announced that we had won the most prestigious award of the evening ... Overall Winner 2019!
Both wins took us totally by surprise and we're over the moon to have taken two awards back to the office after entering only one! This achievement really couldn't have come at a better time as we're currently celebrating our 10th business anniversary too.
“Although Jonathan and I founded the company 10 years ago, this award is a result of the fantastic work of our team - I’m extremely proud of them.” - James Green, Director, Green Custard
Thank all of our employees, customers, partners, friends and family for making this all possible. Congratulations to our fellow winners and finalists too. There were so many talented business owners in the room last night and it was great to meet you all.
The next stop for us ... Wembley! We're now up for Business of the Year at the SME National Business Awards 2019 which are being held in December. Wish us luck!
