Celebrating the best in Coffs Business

THE Sunny's Business Awards, on tonight at C.ex Coffs, promises to be a fun-filled night, celebrating the outstanding standard of business excellence we have in the Coffs region.

Hosted by Tim Campbell and with entertainment from Funky Mustard, there will also be a delicious three-course meal from the talented team at C.ex Coffs.

Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce president George Cecato has said the evening is a true celebration of the vibrant business community in the Coffs region.

"We always have an exceptionally strong standard of entrants across the field,” Mr Cecato said.

The Sunny's present a great opportunity for local businesses to be recognised for excellence in business.

Applicants say they

find the application

process a really beneficial exercise; giving them the chance to evaluate their business, assess how it is going and make plans for the future.

Mr Cecato has said the standard of entries is a credit to the region.

"The standard of entries indicates to us that we

have some extremely high quality businesses in our region.”

"Our businesses always strive to do better for their employees and their customers.

"The Sunny's is a great opportunity to highlight those businesses.”

Mr Cecato said the business operators in the Coffs Harbour region have a unique and positive perspective that flows into their business practices.

"Overall I think we are very friendly people. I believe our quality of life is so good here and our businesses portray that.”
