CHICAGO—Tasty Catering has been named as one the winners in The Chicago & Northern Illinois Better Business Bureaus’ (BBB) thirteenth annual Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. The Torch Awards spotlight five companies that exemplify ethical business practices. Tasty Catering is in great company with customers such as The Inland Real Estate Group and Assurance Agency, Ltd. The other winners are Packer Engineering, Inc. and Integrated Project Management Co. Inc.
Tasty Catering CEO Tom Walter states “’Always Moral, Ethical and Legal’ is our first core value. Our company’s success is due to a value proposition supported by our core values. We hold our vendors and clients to the same standards. The result is a flourishing business in a sea of trust.” Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois states, “The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics honors companies that make a demonstrable effort to promote ethical business practices, and we are pleased to see the number of businesses who, in the eyes of their customers and other associates, meet that threshold.”
The 2009 competition had the largest number of nominations and entries with more than 1,800 nominations from a wide variety of businesses, explained Bernas. Companies are judged in five categories based on their number of employees. Bernas noted that the presentation of awards is just the tip of the iceberg for companies that do it right by working with their customers, suppliers and other organizations in a professional manner. It remains important for people to inform the BBB when they have done business with a company that did an exemplary job. Many of the over 1,800 nominees for this award were the result of consumers alerting the BBB to companies who ‘do it right’. Winners will receive their honors at an awards luncheon ceremony held on Thursday, December 3rd, 2009 at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza in Chicago.
