The Hotel Jacaranda Receives Business of the Year Award
The Hotel Jacaranda recently received the 2009-10 Business of the Year award from the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce. Each year the chamber gives the award to a business that stands out in Avon Park.
“It is an honor to receive this award from the chamber,” said Don Appelquist, executive director, SFCC Foundation, Inc. “The real credit goes to the hotel and restaurant operations in maintaining the building for downtown Avon Park and making space available for the community to lease.”
“The Business of the Year award is one of the most prestigious awards the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce awards to a business that goes above and beyond for the community,” said Dave Greenslade, Avon Park Chamber of Commerce. “The Hotel Jacaranda is a historic landmark and a mainstay of business in Avon Park, and the renovations to the building have helped to keep it a part of the progress of Avon Park.”
