Small businesses are at the heart of our economy in the Inland Empire. In celebration of Small Business Month in May, I will be highlighting some of the many small businesses that have enriched our communities.
This week, I want to acknowledge Impressions Gourmet Catering from Ontario.
In 1983 Sandra Forney established Impressions Catering. Their award-winning team of chefs provides full service catering to customers in the Inland Empire.
Recently, Sandra was awarded the Business Woman of the Year by National Association of Women Business Owners Inland Empire (NAWBO-IE). Recognized as someone who has taken creative initiative to grow her business, create jobs and help her community, she has received awards from Rotary, Soroptimist, Chaffey College, Ontario and Rancho Chambers of Commerce to name a few.
Sandra and her hard-working staff can be seen at many local events, often donating their services. If you see their team out and about, please help me thank her for all her hard work and dedicated service to our community.
If you are a small business owner, or interested in starting your own business, the Office of the Small Business Advocate within the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development provides information and assistance to small businesses so they can succeed in the California marketplace.
