Arlington’s Legacy Awards are held every spring at the Arlington Premiere as a way for the County to honor and recognize its longest standing businesses and their contribution to our solid economy.
This year, in recognition of May’s Business Appreciation Month (BAM), we will be honoring the three “B”s of BAM. The Legacy awards will be given to the longest-standing company in each of the following categories: Bakery, Boutique and Bike Shop.
Come to the Arlington Premiere on May 8 to learn who the 2019 Legacy Award winners are!
In 2018, we recognized companies who are creating legacies in several key areas reflecting Arlington County’s core values: Diversity and Inclusion, Sustainability and Social Impact. Not only do companies look for evidence of these initiatives when they consider where to locate, but employees also look for these values as they choose where to work. The fourth award category, Arlington’s Comeback Kid, showcases the resiliency of our community and its business owners.
The 2018 Legacy Award winners were: Bridges to Independence (Diversity & Inclusion), Destination Sales & Marketing (Sustainability), Joes Place Pizza & Pasta (Social Impact) and Kinderhaus Toys (Arlington’s Comeback Kid).
Companies were evaluated along the parameters below by a six-person committee from Arlington Economic Development, the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and the three Business Improvement Districts.
