"Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection.”​

Over the course of the past 26 years the Georgia Family Business of the Year Awards have been a staple in our community by shining the light of recognition on the hard work done by family businesses. Over this quarter century the Cox Family Enterprise Center has presented close to one hundred awards to family businesses throughout the state of Georgia. Building on this amazing legacy, we decided to introduce an element of innovation capturing two critical dimensions: Resiliency and Sustainability while maintaining the deserved respect of Legacy.

We are pleased to announce the finalists in the 26th Annual Georgia Family business of the year Honoration:
