Recipient of the 2011 Business Excellence Award! Thank You Kelowna!

Wow.  It’s tough to describe how honored we are to be the recipients of the 2011 Business Excellence award for Small Business!! 
First and foremost we’d like to thank you, our community, our clients, the Chamber of Commerce and so many others that we’re connected within the Regional District of the Central Okanagan.  We’d also like to extend congratulations to the other finalists in the Small Business category; X10sion 207 Clothing Company/Surf Culture Clothing Co./X10sion 207 Premium OUTLET and All Occasions Party Rentals Inc.
It wasn’t without effort getting here, but with an amazing staff in place that is willing to go above and beyond our expectations, to deliver on our promises, it’s been worth every step of the way!   We’ve seen each member of our team grow and the dedication of everyone in really raising the bar of service excellence – far above our slogan and right in line with our mission statement, it means so much more than words when you actually see your staff live it every day!
In line with our commitment to excellence, we want to take this opportunity again to share our heartfelt thanks to you.  We hope if there’s anything we can do to get involved with your business, you’d give us a call so we can show-off our award winning team! 
Of course as all small business owners know, with every ‘calm will come a storm.  We appreciate and respect this award, yet are inspired to blow the business community away next year and reef our sails through whatever challenges ahead.  Total Office will lead the office furniture and service industry to higher levels, we will do our best to encourage the business leaders around us to continue and do the same!
Let’s take on 2012 together, Kelowna!
