When asked about winning this award, owner Cory Swanson said, “It is truly an honor and a blessing to be awarded and recognized as Small Business of the Year by the Chamber. We would like to thank all of our customers throughout the years who have hired us and have recommended us to others they know. Going forward this award will give credibility to the message we convey to our customers about the integrity our business is built upon. Maintaining our business model will be strengthened by the Small Business of the Year recognition.”
The Small Business of the Year Award is given to an outstanding small business that has made a significant, long-term contribution to the local community and economy. The award is intended to recognize a successful and growing business that has achieved its status through ingenuity and hard work. The Chamber has been honoring local businesses with this award for more than 20 years.
The Roofing Dog deals in construction, specifically residential roofing of existing homes.
