A Phoenix franchise of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing was one of 75 companies nationwide named Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners today by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

It was the only Arizona company that made the cut.

Linda Stanfield’s franchise located near the Interstate 10 and East Elliot Road was honored for dedication to the principles of free enterprise and contributions to restoring jobs and prosperity.

Stanfield’s franchise is one of ten Benjamin Franklin Plumbing franchises in the Valley that provide on-site repairs.

The company was recognized for excellent strategy, employee development, community involvement and customer service.

"The recipients of this year’s Blue Ribbon Award excelled in business amid great uncertainty and thrived despite difficult economic times,” said Thomas Donohue, U.S. Chamber president and CEO. "More important than profits, their successes have provided much-needed jobs and hope to the people in their communities.”

This year’s 75 Blue Ribbon winners were selected from a record number of nationwide applicants and will be honored at America’s Small Business Summit 2012, which will be held from May 21–23 in Washington.

The award winners are now being considered for the Dream Big Small Business of the Year award. On March 15, seven Blue Ribbon recipients will be announced as award finalists. At the small business summit the Dream Big winner will be presented with a $10,000 cash prize courtesy of the U.S. Chamber.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
