About the Program
The Family-Owned Business Awards program honors family businesses that make up the backbone of the American economy. From small, boutique operations to large multi-generational firms, these entrepreneurial families are building business legacies that will last for generations to come. More than two thirds of privately held businesses in the U.S. are family-owned firms. Delaware Business Times will be celebrating the family-owned businesses that are successful, growing and moving America forward. Honorees will be profiled in Delaware Business Times and celebrated a high-energy awards celebration.
