QuickBridge Announces Winners of National Small Business Week Contest

a privately-held, leading financial services firm offering business
loans to small- to mid-sized businesses nationwide, is pleased to
announce and spotlight the winners of its 2018 National Small Business
Week Contest.

QuickBridge’s contest ran from Monday, April 23 through Friday, May 4.
Individuals were asked to nominate their favorite small business or
their own business through QuickBridge’s social media channels–with a
100-word-or-less comment on why the business deserved recognition. The
winners were selected by a panel of QuickBridge judges based on the
value or intrigue of the entry. QuickBridge received an overwhelming
number of nominations and ultimately announced the following five small
businesses as winners:

DeBary, Florida-based MG
Coffee Brews & Bites was nominated for its delicious coffee and
pastries, and welcoming environment. The shop was started in 2016 by
husband and wife pair Garth and Marina who realized there was a lack of
coffee shops in their area that offered both excellent quality and
top-notch customer service.

Located in Coal Center, Pennsylvania, Chloe
and Me Candles owner Staci C. needed a way to earn income and stay
home to care for her special needs daughter. She found a solution and
great success creating ready-to-order, quality hand-poured soy blend
candles, wax melts, and bath and body products.

Irvine, California-based, Wake
Up to Beauty was founded in 2016 by Celeste and David after the pair
acquired the assets of an all-natural beauty product line and opened
their own in-house manufacturing facility. The pair now handles the
manufacturing, selling, distribution, and marketing for two beauty
brands that sell in big-name retailers nationwide. And their growing
business continues to create jobs in the Orange County community.

Located in Sacramento, California, Noah’s
Boytique owner Lindsay H. specializes in designing fashionable
bodysuits for infant and toddler boys. She wasn’t originally planning to
sell her creations, but thanks to overwhelming popularity, Noah’s
Boytique now employs a dozen local moms to keep up with
demand–providing them with a flexible schedule and kid-friendly work

Costa Mesa, California-based, Orange
County Wedding Dance owners Sara and Joe specialize in creating
wedding first dances for couples and their families. As a married couple
and global dance champions, the pair have the unique ability to create a
genuine first dance that not only complements the couple but also brings
out their personalities.

“Small businesses play a key role in our communities,” said QuickBridge
Director of Marketing Jenny Alonzo. “We are thrilled that through our
QuickBridge Small Business Week contest, we were able to bring
additional brand awareness and recognition to these creative,
hardworking, and most-deserving businesses.”
