The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce will recognize the 2012 Small Business of the Year this Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 4 pm at the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce 19900 West Catawba Avenue in Cornelius. The Chamber solicited nominations from among the nearly 900 members and will recognize a first place, runner-up, and two honorable mentions.

Selected as the finalists are Cool Breeze Cyclery of Mooresville, Savvy Salon & Day Spa in Cornelius, Uncommon Scents, Inc, in Huntersville, and The Welcome Committee, Inc. in Mooresville.

Jack Salzman, 2012 Chairman of the Board of the Lake Norman Chamber, led the committee which chose the recipients of this year’s award. “As a business owner myself, I know first hand the challenges we have all had to endure these last few years. These four in particular not only demonstrated business growth and put into practice innovative marketing techniques that help them capture their market segments they gave back to our community in a spectacular manner.”
