DCEDC Presents Local Business Awards

Wednesday was the Door County Economic Development Corporation’s 34th annual investors meeting and luncheon, held at Stone Harbor Resort, where five Door County business awards were presented.
The Women, Minority or Veteran Owned Business of the Year Award went to Amy Labott of Door County Hardware. In the last two years, this business relocated into a new Sturgeon Bay location, renovated its old business space into new multiple leasable spaces, and has taken over a new location in Sister Bay.
The Emerging Business of the Year Award went to One Barrel Brewing Company. In just five years, owners Pete & Jennifer Gentry have made the brewery a staple, year-round destination in Egg Harbor.
The Established Business of the Year Award went to the Just in Time Corporation. Started by Rick Jeanquart, he and his three children have been serving a variety of industries for over thirty years.
This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award was given to John Roen Asher of Roen Salvage Company. For over fifty years, his company has been one of the premier marine construction companies on the great lakes. He has also served on the Door County Maritime Museum board of directors for thirty one years, and was instrumental in the fundraising for the museum’s ten story Maritime Tower.
Then, this was the inaugural year for the new Youth Apprentice of the Year Award, which went to Sophia Counard, a senior at Southern Door High School. Sophia received a $1,000 scholarship for her work at Destination Sturgeon Bay which she will use next year as she attends UW-Stevens Point.
Each winner was presented with an award designed by Sturgeon Bay’s Popelka Trenchard glass. Congratulations to all 5 of this year’s business award winners.
