SCARBOROUGH, MAINE (October 6, 2017) – The Scarborough Economic Development Corporation’s (SEDCO’s) Board of Directors honored four local businesses as the 2017 Outstanding Businesses of the Year at the corporation’s Annual Meeting at the Black Point Inn on October 3, 2017.
The 2017 Outstanding Scarborough Businesses include:
Martin’s Point Health Care: Project of the Year, New Building
The Holy Donut: Project of the Year: Reuse or Renovation
Mutty Paws Academy: Outstanding Small Business
Highland Avenue Greenhouse & Farm Market: Outstanding Legacy Business
“It’s a pleasure to once again recognize outstanding businesses in Scarborough,” said Kevin Freeman, SEDCO Board Chair. “The Scarborough business community is so vibrant, that it is a real challenge to narrow the field down to just four businesses. This year we’re honoring businesses in Health Care, Restaurants, Retail and Service. Each one of the businesses and their employees have made a difference in Scarborough this year.”
“The SEDCO annual meeting celebrates the energy and creativity of businesses in Scarborough,” said Karen Martin, SEDCO executive director. “It’s our way of thanking our businesses for choosing Scarborough and contributing to the community.”
The SEDCO Annual Meeting, held in October of each year, draws a crowd of nearly 150 attendees. This year, the corporation also launch a new visitor industry website to complement the existing SEDCO site. “Our existing site was designed to speak to businesses,” said Freeman. “The visitor industry site will be focused on activities and events in Scarborough – something useful to visitors and residents alike.”
