A Port Moody eatery scooped the top prize last night (Thursday) at the 14th annual Small Business BC Awards gala.
Rocky Point Ice Cream Inc. beat out nearly 700 nominations to win the title of Best Company, at an event held at the Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver.
Started in 1997 by Jamie and Yvette Cuthbert, the ice cream store is located at Rocky Point Park and sells products using local ingredients.
Two years ago, it was a Top 5 finalist for a SBBC accolade.
Sponsored in part by the government of B.C. and the Insurance Bureau of Canada, the SBBC awards aim to recognize outstanding entrepreneurs around the province.
As winners, the Cuthberts will receive $1,500, an all-access pass to Small Business BC seminars and expert services for a year.
