The Search Begins for the 2019 Small Business of the Year



The Cobb Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications until Friday, March 8, 2019 for the Cobb Chamber’s Small Business of the Year Awards. Each year, the Chamber names the Top 25 Small Businesses of the Year from a wide pool of applicants. The 2019 Small Business of the Year will be selected from among the Top 25 small businesses.

To celebrate Cobb’s brightest business stars and up-and-coming businesses, the Cobb Chamber also offers an additional award category—the Businesses to Watch. These businesses are on the rise—achieving incredible growth while launching just three years ago or less.

Business owners can nominate themselves or other businesses. Nominees must:

  • Be a Cobb Chamber member
  •  Demonstrate an increase in sales and/or unit volume
  •  Have been in business at least three years
  • Show evidence of contributions to community-oriented projects
  • Comply with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s size standards in defining a small business (sba.gov/size)
  • Be for-profit


The Top 25 will be recognized and the Small Business of the Year will be announced during the Cobb Chamber’s May 6, 2019 breakfast event. In addition, The Service Fort, the 2018 Small Business of the Year, will be inducted into the Cobb Chamber Small Business Hall of Fame, joining the past 34 years of winners.

The 2019 Small Business of the Year winner will participate in the Georgia Small Business of the Year competition.
