And the award goes to…our Papa Bear!!!!

Our business partner, our leader and friend, John Nichols, was recognized last Wednesday as Rochester’s Business person of the year.  It’s very well-deserved on his part, as he is constantly striving to be the best that he can be – and pushing each of us to do the same.  We want to take time to congratulate our “Papa Bear” – an endearing nickname given by us “Lovin’ Cuppers” – and let him now how proud we are of him.

For those of you who are not familiar with this award, here is a write up by the Rochester Business Journal:

The Small Business Council of Rochester has honored two business owners as Business Persons of the Year at its annual awards ceremony.

The awards went to John Ford Nichols, president and CEO of construction company Nichols Team, and Raymond Isaac, president of Isaac Heating & Air Conditioning. The annual awards honor companies that show continued growth, innovation and giving back to the community.

Nichols won among businesses with fewer than 50 employees, and Isaac won in the larger company category.

Candidates for the Business Person of the Year award are nominated by their peers, and a selection committee then reviews the nomination packages and selects finalists.
