BBB Honors Businesses for Ethical Practices
The Better Business Bureau has named the recipients of the 2019 Torch Award for Ethics. The recognitions honor organizations that demonstrate exceptional commitment to building trust and integrity with their customers, fellow business owners and communities.
Winners in the Northwest and Pacific are Hi-line Service and Hydraulics as the Business of the Year and Quiet Waters as the Charity of the Year. A new honor this year – the Spark Award – goes to a newer business – Edible Arrangements.
“We are so honored to announce the Torch Award winners for 2019,” said BBB NW+P CEO Tyler Andrew. “This award represents ethical achievement and symbolizes the highest level of trust in the marketplace. These businesses truly deserve the spotlight for their dedication to these values.”
Hi-Line Service and Hydraulics provides semi-truck and trailer repair, auto and diesel repairs in Culbertson, Montana. The company is dedicated to transparency, trust and their community- which shows in their efforts to give back to the community through partnerships.
Edible Arrangements offers edible gift baskets and a full food service storefront in Bozeman. The company has been accredited since 2016 and continues to uphold the high standards BBB requires to be an accredited business. Their commitment to their customers and community stood out from other applications in Montana.
Warriors and Quiet Waters has shown commitment building trust among their staff, donors and within their community. Their mission is to bring peace and healing to veterans with injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder by placing them in a healing environment and teaching them the art of fly fishing. Beginning in 2007, the Warriors and Quiet Waters has been able to complete 705 fishing experiences to warriors and their families.
This year, nearly 300 businesses and charities were nominated for the Torch Award for Ethics. Each applicant goes through a meticulous application process that is then reviewed by independent.
