Merritt’s Kekuli Café Nominated for Best Concept and Premier’s People’s Choice at Small Business BC Awards 

November 20, 2014 – British Columbia: The 2015 Small Business BC Awards opened for nominations on October 1, 2014 attracting more than 346 British Columbia-based small businesses who have been nominated so far. 

Among the nominees is Kekuli Café in Merritt, who has been nominated for Best Concept and Premier’s People’s Choice. The Best Concept Award, is open to all new exciting, creative and innovative businesses in BC with a viable idea that’s going to make an impact. The Premier’s People’s Choice Award celebrates BC’s amazing entrepreneurs by recognizing a small business that is at the heart of their community. 

Only three months old, Kekuli Café already has two locations and plans to franchise the business to help bring First Nations foods into the new Millennium. 

Since its inception in 2003, the annual Small Business BC Awards have become one of the largest and most widely-recognized contests in British Columbia. Last year, 470 local small businesses were nominated, from 55 communities, across the province. 

The awards acknowledge the contribution that over 400,000 small business owners and entrepreneurs in our province make to their local communities and the global economy. After all, 98 percent of businesses in BC are small businesses, and the Thompson-Okanagan is home to about 50,900 of them.
