The Buffalo Chamber of Commerce presented local businesses and business people with framed certificates of recognition for their outstanding efforts in customer service and hospitality.
The REACH (Rare and Exceptional Achievements for Customer Service and Hospitality) awards were given out at their Travel and Tourism reception Tuesday night.
The Chamber had posted the survey on their website this week and asked community members to vote for their favorites in a number of different categories. Chamber Director Angela Jarvis explains how the awards came about.
The winners of the awards were: Ace Hardware for the Business Retail Award; Dash Inn for the Business Hospitality Award; First National Bank's Drive Thru for the Business Service Award; Jill Cooley of First National Bank for the Individual Service Award; Chris Boggs of the Sports Lure for the Individual Retail Award; and Michelle Reiner of Pizza Hut for the Individual Hospitality Award.
Jarvis said everyone was deserving of their nominations.
