Recently, PBi was recognized as a Finalist in the King County Executive Small Business of the Year Awards. Here is an excerpt from the KCE website:
Small Business of the Year
The U.S. Census Bureau of Labor Statistics reported there were 71,070 non-farm firms with employees in King County during 2010, and 95% of these had 50 or fewer employees. The challenges to operating a small business are infinite and often daunting, but the collective contributions of small businesses are vital to the diversity and growth of the county’s economy. On behalf of all small businesses throughout the county, this award is given to the small business that best exemplifies the tenacity, perspicacity, and audacity it takes to successfully operate a small business.
Fremont Brewing Company | Seattle | WINNER
Pacific Bag, Inc | Woodinville | Finalist
Snoqualmie Springs School | Issaquah | Finalist
At PBi, we are proud to be a finalist and be listed alongside the who’s who of great small companies in King County. What kind of business is PBi? We are the place that still likes to talk on the phone with customers, likes to know about their business and we understand tight timelines. We know that life is laced with work, soccer practice, doctor appointments, and lots of hats. We juggle the big and small, we make time to laugh at the water cooler, and take packaging way too seriously (we really like the stuff). We are a company that 90% of our executive and management team came from lower or entry level positions within PBi. We come together to build something better, where our ideas can be developed and because of it, we just simply enjoy what we do.
Thanks to King County, our customers, and our employees—you guys are the best.
