The first year of the Epsom and Ewell Business Awards proved a great success. The calibre of business entries highlights the strength of businesses within the community and the awards have been a great way of honouring their hard work and achievements.
BEST OVERALL BUSINESS 2011 – Jelly Bugs Ltd
"Winning the Overall Best Business in the Epsom & Ewell Business Award has been extremely beneficial for our business.
Our staff and franchisees have felt appreciated for the work and effort they have put in which has kept morale high and is invaluable. Winning has helped promote customer loyalty and will undoubtedly help grow our business.
It has also given both of us a great deal of personal satisfaction. It was wonderful to receive the award from Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP and tour of the Houses of Parliament made for a special event."
