Last August, the Business Journal honored five local companies with successful family-first business models at the 22nd annual Family-Owned Business Awards.
From a tree maintenance company to one of the county’s top engineering firms, the five winners hail from different sectors but have several similarities: They each started out small locally and are now seeing record business growth heading into the latter half of 2022.
The Business Journal caught up with the firms to see what’s changed in the past year, with write-ups on this page and page 26.
The next Family-Owned Business Awards ceremony is scheduled for June 2 at the Irvine Marriott. Bios for the nominees for the upcoming event begin on page 48.
