Ender Kekilli Jewellery at Merrylands took out the coveted Business of the Year Award at the 2014 Holroyd City Local Business Awards last night (Wednesday).
Angelo Kondos from Tracy Roberts Real Estate in Wentworthville took out the Business Person of the Year and Patrick Halaka from Wenty Leagues won the Youth Award.
The category winners were announced at a dinner held at Merrylands RSL Club last night.
For these businesses, winning an award presented a culmination of the efforts they have put forth not only towards the Local Business Awards program, but to the customers they serve on an everyday basis.
Managing director of Precedent Productions Steve Loe said the local businesses of Holroyd City are renowned for having a close-knit relationship with their community.
‘‘Through my experience with the awards, I know that these local businesses are filled with a special kind of person; hard working, and with a dedication to providing the best for their customers,’’ he said.
‘‘There is a great sense of pride and community within the local business people of Holroyd City.
‘‘Although there can only be one category winner each year, congratulations should be extended to all finalists. These businesses represent the elite in the local area.’’
As the award’s official media partner, the Sun will publish a winners feature recognising all category winners from the presentation evening.
The awards were sponsored by major sponsors Holroyd City Council, Stockland Merrylands and Select Credit Union, and support sponsors Merrylands RSL Club, Merrylands Chamber of Commerce, and Wentworthville Community Business Committee.
