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.

This year’s winner Blue Sky Exhibits is a premier exhibit company with expertise in design, manufacturing and field-related services to the Trade Show Industry. Owners Don Keller and Tim Kelly launched the company in 2003.

The Cobb Chamber has expanded the Small Business of the Year program to include recognition for the accomplishments of many new Cobb businesses and startups with the Businesses to Watch awards. These are businesses that were launched within the last three years and already have achieved substantial growth.
