About the Saint Paul Business Awards

The Saint Paul Business Awards Program was launched in 2017 (RES 17-107) to recognize the outstanding businesses that call Saint Paul home.  The program recognizes local businesses that provide critical services, contribute to the City's community, invest in their employees and are committed to Saint Paul's values of equity and diversity.  Since then, twenty-four (24) Saint Paul businesses--small businesses to major employers and new start-ups to generations-old family firms--have been honored for their role in making Saint Paul a vibrant and prosperous city.

Business Awards Guidelines (Eligibility Requirements)

To be eligible for an award, a Saint Paul business must:

  • be committed to equity, diversity and empowerment,
  • provide outstanding customer service,
  • be involved in the community or make attempts to better the community as a whole,
