Small Business Week

San Francisco | May 16-21
5 • 18 • 2011  |  Press
Getting nominated for the 7x7 Magazine Favorite Small Business in San Francisco contest was so exciting for us! We were up against 49 other amazing small businesses in San Francisco for the first two weeks of voting, and then were notified we made it to the final round of the top 7. We put up a tough competition, but in the end, Ike's Place won, and so very well deserved!  
 
The announcement came in person at the kickoff event for Small Business Week here in San Francisco on Monday night at the Metreon City View Room. They did a nice presentation about how important small businesses are in every community, and how working together can help us all grow and thrive. There was then the announcement of the 7x7 Magazine contest winner, and it was really nice to be there in the crowd when they discussed each business and what we do in front of a very large crowd. Michelle, my fiance and I were there in attendance, and of course cheered the loudest when they announced us! It was a really nice night, and I got to meet the other business we were up against, and everyone was so very humble and friendly. I was honored to be a part of it all! 
 
Afterwards, they had the Flavors of San Francisco party, which showcased over 25 different San Francisco restaurants. We stayed for a bit, and then headed out for a wonderful dinner in the neighborhood to celebrate. I got a picture with one of the signs just for fun.
Going through this all made me appreciate what I have developed as a business, the employees I have on my team, and that we really do impact our community. We congratulate all the small businesses out there, and thank each and every one of you for all of your continued support. 
 
Cheers,

  Kathryn
