Chamber accepting nominations for business of the year

Presentation will be made at chamber's annual luncheon meeting on Feb. 19

Ada Area Chamber of Commerce invites nominations for the outstanding business of the year, according to Deb Curlis, chamber director.

A printer-friendly nomination form is attached at the bottom of this story. The outstanding business will be recognized during the chamber’s annual meeting luncheon. It is at noon, Wednesday, Feb. 19, at The Inn at ONU.

Tickets for the meeting are $20 per person with payment due by Feb. 15.

Last year's winner
Last year’s business of the year was 302 Carryout. The family-owned business for 32 years has served as a staple on Ada's Main Street.  Owners are the Gossard family including Beth and her children Mara, Mona and Marlin.

302 Carry Out, at 302 S. Main St., a convenience store, deli and grocery, is open 5 a.m. to midnight daily. In addition, during sweet corn season you can pick up Suter’s sweet corn from a wagon near the street.

But, perhaps the most popular signature of the business is its noon-time grilling, which is seasonal and features its famous "porkyburger." And, based upon this winter’s weather, it couldn’t start too soon.

Nominations for business of the year may be mailed to Ada Area Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 225, Ada, Ohio 45810 or e-mailed to Deb Curlis at debcurlis@yahoo.com. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 31.

A printer-friendly application form is attached below in the red box.
