Each year the community is asked to nominate local businesses who stand out above the rest in seven different categories. A group of volunteers judges the nominations based on innovation, customer satisfaction, industry leadership, community service and local, regional and national achievements. An individual is also chosen as the Business Advocate of the Year for the work they do in the community to support local businesses.
The winners for the 2018 Excellence in Business Awards include:
Business Advocate of the Year – Joe Donaldson, Sam's Furniture
Large Business – Fayetteville Auto Park
Small Business – Arkansas Physical Health & Rehab
Minority & Women-Owned Business – Clark Law Firm
Green & Sustainable Business – Fayetteville Public Library
Entrepreneurial Business – Rockhill Studios

For the next year the winners will be featured in the Chamber offices on the Hall of Honor as well as spotlighted on the Chamber website and social media pages.
