For over 20 years, the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics have recognized businesses whose leaders demonstrate a high level of personal character; ensure that the organization’s practices meet the highest standards of ethics; and consequently, generate trust with its customers and the community.

“We are grateful to be celebrating these local leaders after the unprecedented challenges to businesses and consumers in 2020. Sustaining through adversity is just one of many positive attributes of top leaders in our region,” said BBB Southeast Texas CEO and President Liz Fredrichs.

This is the 3rd year that BBB SETX will award a business in the Spark category. Spark is a Torch Award for Entrepreneurship, recognizing millennial owned and/or operated organizations that demonstrate a higher level of character, generating a culture that is authentic about its mission, and connect with community.

“Millennial entrepreneurship is alive and well in SETX.  These young leaders are an inspiration and testimony to the thriving business community we enjoy in our region.”
