Small Business of the Year

Congratulations to Rockin' Crawfish, winner of San Pablo Small Business of the Year 2017! 

How San Pablo Small Business of the Year Works

The Small Business of the Year winner is chosen through a nomination and selection process. Public nominations were accepted from December 2016 to February 2017 through handwritten ballots as well as online submissions. A selection committee comprised of San Pablo EDC staff and board directors then convened to review the nomination data. This year, Rockin' Crawfish received the winning title, along with Animal Care Clinic as Honorable Mention for Job Creation & Community Leadership AND Alex's Giant Burger as Honorable Mention for Neighborhood Stabilization. The winning businesses are honored at our annual celebration mixer, photographed by acclaimed digital media artist, Karina Furhman. Thanks to our generous Diamond Sponsor, MCE Clean Energy and Ruby Sponsors: First Bank, Salesian College Preparatory, and San Pablo Dental Care, our mixer was a huge success.
