Bass Coast,

Council looking for business excellence

The search is on again to find businesses excelling in Bass Coast as part of Bass Coast Shire Council’s 2017 Business Awards.

Entries into the Awards are now open, and close on Monday, 3 July at 5.00pm, meaning there’s still time to enter.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, said businesses can enter the Judged Awards, or get involved in the People’s Choice Awards.

“We have so many fantastic businesses in Bass Coast, both big and small,” Cr Rothfield said.

“The Bass Coast Business Awards are the perfect opportunity to recognise and reflect on what your business does best, or a chance to nominate a business that you believe has gone above and beyond when it comes to great customer service.”

There are six categories in the judged awards - Business Excellence 0-5 employees; Business Excellence 6 or more employees; Marketing and Promotion; New Business, Environment and Sustainability; and Good Access is Good Business.

There is also a People's Choice section of the Awards, which means customers vote for the business in Bass Coast that they believe provides the best products and services.

People's Choice voting also closes on Monday, 3 July 2017.

Winners will be announced at the Awards presentation Dinner on Friday, 11 August at RACV Inverloch Resort.
