Small Business Champion The Missing Piece Puzzle Company SCORE and Sams Club

The Missing Piece Puzzle Company was named a winner in the 2015 American Small Business Championship by Sams Club and SCORE mentors.  Recognized for their high-quality jigsaw puzzles, business excellence and dedication to their product, The Missing Piece Puzzle Company also received the most amount of votes in the contest, far surpassing the other entrants in the competition.  What a wonderful honor and unprecedented accomplishment. 

Here are a few of the photos from the event.  I had such an amazing time in Rochester while receiving the award and had a fantastic opportunity to meet other small business owners and to collaborate with SCORE mentors at their regional conference.  Making a Jigsaw Puzzle by the Puzzle Queen in The Missing Piece Puzzle Company

After being treated like a puzzle queen, it was nice to come home and implement some of their suggestions, and spend the winnings on some much-needed office furniture and a water cooler for morning discussions!  Congratulations to all of the state winners and a huge thank you to Sams Club and SCORE for putting on such an amazing conference.   I am so very thankful...
