BUSINESS WINNERS | Our big winners in small business

Three businesses from the South-West walked away as national small business champions on Saturday.

They were:

  • Activ Therapy, of Liverpool, which was named Champion Physiotherapy;
  • Xs Espresso, of Wetherill Park, which was named Champion Cafe; and 
  • Fred’s One-Stop Shopping, of Edensor Park, which was named Champion Fresh Food.

This was at the Australian Small Business Champion gala dinner and awards ceremony at The Star Sydney, which was attended by more than 1100 invited guests.

The awards are the only national recognition program for Australian small businesses. The program aims to recognise outstanding Australian small businesses and encourage high standards of excellence in small-business practice.

“Theses awards are a way of recognising the efforts of small business people whose efforts contribute to the prosperity and vitality of communities right across Australia”, said Steve Loe, managing director of Precedent Productions and founder of the awards.

“As a small-business owner I know the vision and dedication to excellence it takes. These traits have been displayed in abundance by all our 2018 champions.”

Representatives of Activ Therapy Liverpool, Xs Espresso Wetherill Park and Fred’s One-Stop Shopping Edensor Park received an award statuette, a certificate and gained national recognition as industry leaders.

Small businesses from across Australia delivered an impressive array of entries, with winners representing a broad range of industries from all states and territories.

It's a way of recognising the efforts of small businesses whose efforts contribute to the prosperity and vitality of communities across Australia. I own a small business and I know the vision and dedication it takes.
