BBB Commends Oregon's 2012 Business of the YearSalem-News.com
Detailed Perfection Earns High Marks from Local Judges.
(LAKE OSWEGO ) - How does your business impact the community?" When asked this question, Detailed Perfection of Corvallis, Ore.—the Oregon winner of Better Business Bureau's 2012 Business of the Year Torch Awards—shared a heart-warming account of contributions to local schools and volunteer work for neighborhood organizations.
After BBB reviewed applications and nominations, volunteer judges from third-party community organizations assessed company entries on four key factors: integrity, involvement, innovation and impression. Out of 35 contenders, Detailed Perfection—an auto detailing business—earned the highest recognition.
"That willingness to go above and beyond the usual day-to-day operations really stands out," says Robert W.G. Andrew, CEO of BBB serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington. "It's impressive to see so many businesses donating time, money and manpower to make their neighborhoods better."
