We’ve recently discussed how excited we are to be a part of the Independent We Stand, which is a movement of independently-owned local businesses. We firmly believe that local economies can be radically transformed when consumers choose to shop at locally owned businesses who in turn support the communities that they are in.
Well… we’re really excited to announce that Howard Brothers has been chosen as one of the 5 semi-finalists for the first ever Independent Business of the Year Award, “The Indie.” This award has been established to recognize and reward the best locally owned business in the country!
This is a huge honor for our little company. For many years, our customers have recognized the type of service that you can expect from Howard Brothers. We really have our customers to thank for the opportunity to even be recognized at this point. We count our customers as friends and family and are excited to come to work each day to help them with their problems and projects. We thank them for telling their circle of influence about us. Word of Mouth is the best marketing tool and we love meeting new folks who were referred to us!
