During her acceptance speech, which was a showstopper I might add, Olive thanked everyone who worked for her, asking employees to stand and be recognized as see did a roll call by department.  (We even had a pre-meeting to go over the game plan of how the speech was going to go!)  She also thanked her family, particularly her husband, who she happened to meet through the Chamber 25 years ago.

It is such an honor to be in the company of the incredible businesses that have been chosen for this award in the past. And from all of us at the Casual Gourmet we want to say thank you for all the support we have been receiving.
