Fremantle Business Celebrates Winners' Circle

Chamber News
The Fremantle Business Community gathered last Friday night to celebrate the achievements of Fremantle’s exceptional and diverse business leaders at a gala dinner at The Esplanade Fremantle – by Rydges.

2019 marks the 11th year of the awards run by the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce in what judges have described as one of the most tightly fought contests the panel has seen.

Fremantle Chamber of Commerce CEO Danicia Quinlan said “We revamped the awards program this year to focus on the fresh approach and growth opportunities within Fremantle, and what makes Fremantle businesses truly distinct and unique.

“A group of 20 finalists were selected by the judges scores to form the 2019 Fremantle Business Winners Circle, with three winners among equals selected as Fremantle Ports Business of the Year, Business Foundations Growth Scholarship Winner and the Peoples Vote for best Fremantle experience."

The WA Maritime Museum took out top honours on the night for their innovation and outstanding contribution as a growing attraction for Fremantle – increasing their family audience growth 148% in the last 12 months.

The Raw Kitchen Zero Store won the Business Foundations Growth Scholarship Award and the Mayors Award for Sustainable Enterprise as the largest zero waste and plastic free store in Australia.

Local South Fremantle Favourite, Percy Flint, took out the Peoples Choice vote, with La Sosta, Sweetwater Roof Top Bar, Kazoomies and Palace Patisserie taking out the Peoples Choice individual category awards.
