Businesses of all sizes have been invited to get their names in the running for the 66th Cork Business of the Year Awards, which will be presented at a gala dinner on February 25th.
The Awards celebrate the outstanding contribution of businesses and individuals working diligently across all sectors in Cork and driving the future direction of the city.
“2022 has been a mixed year for many businesses – everyone is delighted to reopen our doors, but we continue to face intense challenges from recruitment issues to the War on Ukraine, the energy crisis, and shortly, the increase in VAT,” said Cork Business Association President Kevin Herlihy.
“I am blown away every day by the great tenacity and incredible resilience and innovation that businesses throughout our city have shown. Owner/managers are overcoming huge obstacles and working hard to ensure the future of not only their own individual businesses but the growth and prosperity of Cork City.
Last year The Soho Bar Group and Sheena’s Boutique were named the overall winners in the large category and SME category respectively.
Cork City Council elected members and executives were recognised as the Champions of Cork for their response to the changing requirements of businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in the areas of outdoor dining and public realm upgrades.
“Success wears many different hats. To some, it’s bunkering down and keep the doors open to provide a vital service for our city, while others have innovated, pivoted, or grown. We want to hear from you all.” added Herlihy.
