On October 20th 2010, the Better Business Bureau celebrated its 10th annual Torch Award dinner at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The Better Business Bureau presented Appearance Plus Cleaners as winner of the 2010 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics for business of 45-99 employees.
“We have learned over the years that ethics and integrity are the common thread that runs through the most valuable assets that make up our business” – Jon Lindy, President of Appearance Plus Cleaners.
The Torch Award is given in recognition to businesses that are committed to and demonstrate the highest level of ethics and integrity in the marketplace. Appearance Plus Cleaners’ 26 years of commitment to a standard of excellence embracing both ethics and integrity is embodied by a committed staff, loyal customers and a consistent culture.
“Our prime directive has been to exceed the customer’s expectations of quality and service on each visit or delivery and to this day we measure our success on these requirements” says Debbie Heitzman, GM of Appearance Plus Cleaner.
The Torch Award recipients and honorees were selected by a distinguished panel of independent judges that included: Liz Carter – Executive Director, Society of St Vincent de Paul; Tim Meyer – President, Meyer Capital Management; Dan Neyer – President, Neyer properties, Inc; and Michael Moser – vice President & Coo, Western & Southern Financial Group.
“The Torch Award encompasses the spirit and tradition of the BBB unlike anything else,” said Jocile Ehrlich, Cincinnati BBB president and CEO. “It recognizes and honors businesses and organizations who fully commit themselves to ethical practices in all aspects of their business dealings.”
About the Cincinnati Better Business Bureau
The Cincinnati BBB was founded in 1926 when the economy was roaring. Consumers needed to be able to rely and trust the companies they dealt with on a daily basis. The BBB’s founding members recognized that need and formed an organization that would set standards, lead the way and promote a better, respectable and more ethical marketplace. The Torch Awards are a continuation of the BBB’s 80-year tradition and commitment to furthering that mission.
