PrePlan wins BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence
June 12, 2014

Better Business Bureau serving Upstate New York is proud to present PrePlan with the Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence in the small business category. The award is designed to promote not only the importance of ethical business practices, but the willingness and efforts made by outstanding businesses to ensure that our marketplace remains fair and honorable. BBB was joined by the New York State Funeral Directors Association in honoring PrePlan at a dinner in Saratoga Springs.

Established in 1988, PrePlan is a funeral trust pre-funding program, backed by the New York State Funeral Directors Association. It currently administers over 88,000 consumer trust accounts for close to 630 funeral homes across New York State. Based in Albany, PrePlan is an A+ Accredited Business with BBB since 2011. 

An independent judging committee reviewed each application received by BBB and scores each business, grouped by size, to identify winners with each category. Businesses throughout Upstate New York have an opportunity to apply for the annual BBB Torch Award program whether they are BBB accredited or not. The businesses that apply must be in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
