ICC Restoration & Cleaning Services was recognized as a finalist for the 2018 Better Business Bureau® of Minnesota and North Dakota’s (BBB) Torch Awards for Ethics. BBB’s Torch Awards for Ethics recognizes leading area businesses that uphold the highest standards and display an outstanding level of ethics and integrity, in every aspect of their day to day operations.
There were more 1,000 entries for the award this year from businesses throughout Minnesota and North Dakota. ICC was named one of five finalists for businesses with 11-50 employees.
“We feel extremely humbled and honored to have been nominated and a finalist,” said Tom Laska, founder and president of ICC.
Nearly 300 business owners and community leaders attended the awards ceremony Oct. 24. Jason Matheson and Alexis Thompson of MyTalk 107.1 emceed the event, and Dennis W. Schulstad, retired Brigadier General, USAF, served as keynote speaker.
“We were proud to honor this year’s finalists and winners at our annual Torch Awards ceremony,” said Susan Adams Loyd, President and CEO of the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. “These local businesses deserve recognition for how they value and demonstrate the highest level of ethics in all that they do, both with their businesses and in the community.”
BBB presents the Torch Awards for Ethics each year to several for-profit businesses located within the Minnesota and North Dakota region. Eligible businesses are offered the opportunity to submit an entry to BBB, where a panel of independent volunteer business and community leaders select the winners. Nominees must be in good standing with BBB; however, BBB Accreditation is not a requirement to compete.
