The best in the business

Three cheers for the winners!

Onkaparinga’s top businesses were crowned at the 2020 ON Business Awards ceremony at the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre on Wednesday night.

The 16 winning businesses (see list below), which are spread across the city and offer everything from wine to window tinting, received their awards following an extensive nomination and voting period.

More than 3800 nominations were made by the public for more than 340 local businesses, with more than 8000 votes cast for those shortlisted.

The awards, which are an initiative of City of Onkaparinga’s ON Business Partner Program and recognise local business excellence, took on extra importance this year.

Two new awards were added in 2020 that directly respond to  COVID-19, recognising the resilience and success of the local business community that has faced unprecedented challenges in the face of the virus.

The awards also supported council’s Go South Go Local campaign, which is aimed at supporting local businesses to recover and grow amid the pandemic.

The campaign’s message is simple – you can make a difference simply by buying local. Every dollar spent with a local business helps to rebuild the local economy, grow the local business community, and ensure local people continue to be employed.

For business owners, a toolkit is available to help your business get involved and spread the Go South Go Local message.

Head to the ON Business website to download digital assets, receive an introductory pack including in-store displays, learn how to get your business listed in our free directory and gain access to events, business advice, offers and promotions.

Without further ado, see who took out the 2020 ON Business Awards!
