OPC Receives NJSBDC 2020 Annual Small Business Growth Client Award

America’s SBDC New Jersey, also known as the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers (NJSBDC) network, recently announced the 2020 winners of its annual Small Business Growth Client Awards. We’re proud to announce that we were one of the recipients of this award!

NJSBDC recognized 13 small business clients from around the state for their overall business achievements, as well as steadfast perseverance during the COVID-19 pandemic. The companies come from a wide range of industries and were singled out for successfully pivoting their business models to forge ahead with new business opportunities and a sound foundation for the future.

We are honored to be among the winners of the 2020 award. Traditionally, the client award winners are honored at the annual December Small Business Growth Awards luncheon at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, but, the 2020 awards luncheon was canceled due to the health and public safety constraints of COVID-19. We look forward to a time when we can meet with the other award recipients in our area.

Bill Harndon, Director of New Jersey Small Business Development Center (SBDC) came to OPC headquarters to present the award. We were all excited to show him around the Organic Plant Care LLC premises and have him meet our team.

Of course, we wouldn’t be here without our fantastic tree and lawn care customers. A big thank you to our customers who have continued to support us during this past year!
