In 2010, Hollis Cinema 4 in Globe was honored as an AZSBDC Success Awards winner. On May 5, the Hollis family business will be recognized again — this time as the recipient of the Jeffrey Butland Family-Owned Business of the Year award at the 2011 U.S. Small Business Administration Awards for Arizona. The SBA awards celebrate and recognize small business entrepreneurs and champions from across the state. They will be held as part of the 18th Annual Enterprise Business Awards Luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore.
Hollis Cinema 4 owners Bob and Susie Hollis worked with Gila Community College SBDC Center Director Ron Nielsen to write the 90-page business plan that made it possible to obtain financing for the reborn theater project in 2009. An SBA loan was part of the original capitalization.
The Enterprise Business Awards Luncheon will be held on May 5 at 11 a.m. Tickets are available through the Arizona Small Business Association (connect HERE), which is hosting the event. The AZSBDC Network is proud to have assocations with winners in three categories this year! Other winners include the Arizona Western College SBDC as the Small Business Development Center of the Year and Microbusiness Advancement Center Executive Director Debbie Chandler, who is the host of our Microbusiness Advancement Center SBDC in Tucson and the winner of the SBA’s Women in Business Champion of the Year award.
Congratulations to all!
