Krush Burger, the Sacramento mobile food truck company that’s revved up its business growth into several stand-alone restaurants, is being honored as “small business of the year” by the regional U.S. Small Business Administration. The annual award is based on a number of criteria, including financial performance, increase in sales, employee growth, innovativeness of product/services, response to adversity and community contributions.
In addition to Krush Burger, other companies in the SBA’s Sacramento District that earned recognition include: Wildcard Brewing Company in Redding as startup of the year; J&J Framing in Yuba City as veteran-owned business of the year; North Star Construction in Yuba City as contractor of the year; Community 1st Bank in Auburn as community lender of the year; and Lifetime Adoption Center in Grass Valley, woman-owned business of the year.
SBA Sacramento district director Joe McClure said he hopes the annual awards, which will be presented at a May 21 luncheon, will “inspire more people in their communities to pursue their own entrepreneurial dreams.”
The regional SBA office covers 21 northeastern California counties, from Modoc to San Joaquin.
