The Milton City Council approved a Business of the Quarter award to be named "Clayton White Business Award." The council voted April 10, 2018 for the first business to receive the award to be Tops Appliance.
The recognition includes a plaque, photo opportunity, an article about the business, and placement of the Clayton White Business of the Quarter sign in front of the recipient's business for three months.
The criteria for selection requires the business to: hold a current business license within the the city, have no outstanding code violations and be involved in civic activities. Appearance is also part of the selection process. Businesses can also be recognized based on cleanliness, sustainability, flower beds/planters, design/color/creativity and landscaping. The recognition is not an opinion on the success of the business, but more so on the perception of being a corporate citizen. Being selected for the award is both an honor and a spotlight on a particular business.
Businesses will receive a social media boost, an article in MiltonLocal.com and a press release.
Milton City Council will nominate potential recipients.
