The Bellevue Chamber of Commerce recently honored Fresh Consulting as one of the Top 12 finalists for Eastside Small Business of the Year.

It’s a true honor to be recognized among Bellevue’s most preeminent businesses. We are proud that Fresh’s emphasis on creating innovative, scientific, and lasting designs, as well as our commitment to recruiting and retaining diverse and collaborative talent, stood out to the selection committee. It was also great to be nominated alongside one of our own outstanding clients, Washington Federal, whose website we recently designed and developed.

We joined all of the nominees at The Golf Club at Newcastle on March 31st to celebrate the 27th Annual Eastside Business Awards. Congratulations to MOD Pizza on winning Eastside Business of the Year. We frequently bring in MOD for the entire company as part of our daily lunch program, so we feel a part of their success. Also awarded were the Most Innovative Product or Service of the Year, Entrepreneurial Spirit – Startup of the Year, and the Chairman’s Century Award. Nominees ranged from startups to large corporations, all described as being set apart by their innovation, creativity, talent, and leadership.

Bellevue Chamber has a unique vantage point for assessing the Eastside business climate. As the voice of business on the Eastside, they provide strategic leadership, advocacy, tools, and resources for citywide business success. This year’s awards sought to recognize local businesses with an established presence in the community, a commitment to workforce excellence, and a demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit.
