Overland Park’s Sage Restoration is a national finalist for a small business award presented by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and MetLife.
Sage is one of 17 companies selected as finalists for the Dream Big Small Business of the Year Award. The winner will be announced Sept. 12 at the chamber’s Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C. The grand prize is $25,000 in cash.
The award is presented to a growing, innovative small business that has excellent relations with its customers, employees and community.
And that definitely describes Sage Restoration, the only KC-area company to become a finalist. Whenever flames, flooding or some other calamity strikes, Sage assists homeowners and businesses by offering expertise in clean-up, restoration and remediation. The company also provides help with hoarding and biohazard situations.
Each of the finalists – including Sage Restoration – is also in the running for the Community Excellence Award, given to a company that goes above and beyond to serve the community. Members of the public can vote for the Community Excellence Award now through July 31 at this website.
“Small businesses are a critical and vibrant segment of the U.S. economy. Despite the challenges they face, small business owners never stop innovating, taking risks, working hard and dreaming big,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“These finalists and their small businesses strengthen their communities and local economies. The Chamber is proud to honor these outstanding companies, which together represent what’s possible in our free enterprise system. They are a reminder that there is nothing small about small business.”
Sage Restoration is a past winner of the 25 Under 25® Awards presented by Thinking Bigger Business Media. The company is owned by Stephanie Sage, and her husband, Alan, is the sales manager.
