Three local businesses have made it into the finals of the Small Business BC awards.
GameQuest, a downtown gaming store, is one of the top-five finalists in the Premier’s People’s Choice category.
Playgrounds Café is a top-five finalist in the Best Concept category.
Shiraz Café and Restaurant is a top-five finalist in the Best Immigrant Entrepreneur category.
The top five finalists in each category will now present a Dragons’ Den-style pitch to the judges to convince them why they should be named a B.C. best business.
Winners will be announced on February 26 at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver, where 500 small business owners, government representatives and other key business influencers will enjoy an evening that recognizes the amazing entrepreneurs in the province.
