2024 Small Business of the Year: Triple Seven Trucking

After a weeklong celebration of five finalists for the 2024 Small Business of the Year in Mount Pleasant, the winner was announced Friday morning.

Congratulations to your 2024 Small Business of the Year, Triple Seven Trucking! During the breakfast, Blaire Barton (owner) spoke about being honored to even be a finalist. Triple Seven Trucking acquired a new building a few short years ago, and it is built on ground that his grandfather owned when he was a baby.

Guest speaker, Craig Smith (CEO of Sterzing Food Company) talked about change, which is something that every business must face. He joined Paul and Kadie for a special episode of generation gap, which is available on KILJ.com and on KILJ Spotify page, where nearly every finalist spoke as well.

It is important to celebrate small businesses, and to congratulate those who work extra hard to make this town a better place. Congratulations to all of the finalists, From the Heart Flowers and Gifts, Sa3m Sao Market, Orthodontic Associates of Iowa, and Southeast Iowa Realty!
