BBB Now Accepting Nominations For Torch Awards

Often times, our memory of bad businesses overwhelms thoughts of companies that actually do everything right - treat their employees and the marketplace with integrity and in an ethical manner. You know who they are. You may work at the best, or wish you did.

The Better Business Bureau of North Central Texas wants to know what businesses you think adhere to the highest standards and practices as we are accepting nominations for our Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence. Your nomination could be named the annual torch award winner, an enviable honor for those who believe in putting ethics first.

We receive nominations from customers, vendors, suppliers and employees. The award recognizes a small medium and large for-profit business and we now recognized non-profit organizations as well.

Entry forms are available on line or you can call the BBB office at 940-691-1172 to nominate a company.  The deadline is May 30.
