Businesses from Billings, Bozeman, Fairfield, Great Falls and Havre are the winners of the 2010 Montana Family Business awards. The businesses, which ranged in size from fewer than 10 employees to more than 50, will receive their awards at the 2010 Montana State University College of Business State Farm Insurance Family Business Day, set for Friday, Sept. 24, at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman.
The 2010 top family businesses in Montana are: TwoMedicine Health & Financial Fitness of Bozeman in the very small business category (fewer than 10 employees); Red Rock Power, Inc. of Havre in the small business category (10 to 30 employees); Montana Merchandising, Inc. of Great Falls, in the medium business category (30-50 employees); BioScience Laboratories, Inc. of Bozeman, in the large business category (more than 50 employees); Teton Banks of Fairfield in the old business category (at least 50 years); and Agri-Best Feeds, Inc. of Billings in the new business category (operating 10 years or less).
In order to support and honor Montana family businesses, the Montana State University College of Business in Bozeman, supported by generous contributions, is hosting a keynote luncheon prior to the 2010 Family Business Awards ceremony on Friday, September 24, 2010.
This year’s keynote speaker is Kathy Stark, co-founder of Starky’s Authentic Americana. Her presentation “Back from the Blast: Comeback Strategies for Success” will tell how their small family restaurant has seen tragedy and success. She will touch on the challenges they faced, and the comeback strategies they put into place, as well as the importance of their unique mission statement, which has helped Starky’s re-emerge as a leading restaurant in downtown Bozeman. Attendees can look forward to an interesting and educational session.
The cost for the keynote luncheon is $20, and registration is required. For more information or to make a reservation, call Karen Beach at 994-6796 or e-mail email@example.com.
The MSU College of Business would like to thank State Farm Insurance for its continued support in honor of Robert Jaedicke, Stockman Bank, for underwriting the awards, and additional program support from the Montana Chamber of Commerce.
