April 23, 2014

Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington is proud to announce that Glacier Smoothie Soaps LLC of Juneau is the 2014 recipient of the Alaska Business of the Year Torch Award.

In its entry for BBB’s Business of the Year Torch Award, Glacier Smoothie Soaps outlined its dedication to “doing the right thing.” Whether it is taking lost tourists back to their ships, driving customers down to the drugstore or sweeping the sidewalk in front of neighboring stores, the company’s commitment to its shop, its town and its customers shines bright.

When asked what the Torch Award means to her business, Sales Manager Pat Stringer said, “When people see the BBB seal, they know they’ll be treated right. For our family business to receive the Alaska Business of the Year Torch Award is a high honor indeed.”

Stringer added, “We give our time and attention to details that sometimes seem unimportant. We give it our best.”

An awards ceremony will take place on Wed., June 4, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in front of Glacier Smoothie Soaps—356 S Franklin Street, Juneau. The event will include performances by the competitive jump rope team, Juneau Jumpers, and the Thunder Mountain High School Jazz Band.
