Each year, the Cobb Chamber of Commerce celebrates the achievements of small businesses that contribute to the vitality of the community with the announcement of its Top 25 Small Businesses of the Year. The applicants must prove an increase in sales or unit volume, provide examples of innovation, discuss adversity and challenges, and thoroughly detail their community involvement.

First, the Chamber’s vote-getter for Business of the Year is The Service Fort, a family-owned company that has been providing environmentally friendly janitorial and maintenance services for the last 14 years. “Jeremy Fort has built a family of dedicated professionals who find pride in an industry where the hours are long and the customers are slow to show their appreciation,” the Chamber said in a released statement.

One way that The Service Fort gives back is through its partnership with First Step Staffing, a company that employs homeless, transitioning veterans, and individuals with a troubled past. These hires make up the majority of The Service Fort’s janitorial staff.
