1ST PLACE WINNER

R.D. HOWARD CONSTRUCTION
 
R.D. Howard’s mission, since we were founded in 1946, has been to provide an ever increasing range of environmentally sensitive superior construction services that meet the needs of our customers while exceeding their expectations, and doing so at a competitive price, in a professionally rewarding, safe, and family-oriented work space for our staff and stakeholders, that allows for them individually, and the company as a whole, to consistently make a positive impact on the communities that we serve.
 

2ND PLACE WINNER

XENIA ROASTERY
 
"Specialty Coffee for All" is Xenia's Mission Statement. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy specialty coffee everyday. We provide joy and love via specialty coffee. Of all the high-end or top-shelf options available to consumers, high-end coffee has price point options that some low, and most middle class can afford. We want to demystify the auroras of specialty coffee, and do our part to make the coffee industry more inclusive.
