Three finalists are named for Edmond small business of the year
The Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce will name the winner of the Bank of Oklahoma Small Business of the Year award during an awards banquet Friday at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Dr. Mike Grindstaff and his staff are a close-working team at Optique Vision Center that has been open in Edmond and a member of the chamber since 2009, according to a news release. The business is located in the Spring Creek Plaza shopping center.
The business values patient relationships and strives to improve quality of life and vision wellness through uncompromised service and state-of-art technology.
Parkway Cleaners began as a two-man operation in 1959 and has grown over the past 53 years to one of the largest single-site cleaners in the world while remaining under the same family name. The business has been a member of the chamber since 1972.
The business has dominated the Edmond market with constant growth, acquiring an estimated 65 percent of the dry cleaning business, according to a news release from the chamber. One of its favorite business phrases is, “If you're not growing, you're dying.”
