The SBA awarded Andrea Wasko and Meaghan Gilbert, owners of Los Osos based Connoisseur Creations, Inc., their 2019 Small Business Persons of the Year for the SBA’s 15 county San Joaquin Valley and Central Coast region. This is a “Big Dill” for SLO as it is the first time that a business from San Luis Obispo County has received this award. Congressman Salud Carbajal, Keilah Smith, District Director for Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham and Supervisor Bruce Gibson also presented awards honoring Andrea and Meaghan.

“The SBA is proud to recognize Andrea and Meaghan as our 2019 Small Business Persons of the Year,” said Fresno District Director Dawn Golik. “Connoisseur Creations is a great success story about how SBA programs including Women Business Centers, provide free assistance to help woman owned companies start up, scale up, and succeed.” Connoisseur Creations will continue to celebrate National Small Business Week through May 11 and their SBA award for the remainder of 2019.

Connoisseur Creations was selected because of their business philosophy of giving back and helping others. Connoisseur Creations donates part of the Quick Pickle Kit and Spice Packet sales on their website to nonprofit agencies and their products are assembled by disabled adults. QuickPickleKit.com promotes health and reduces food waste.

Established in 1996, Connoisseur Creations’ flagship product, the Quick Pickle Kit, uses 4th generation recipes from Andrea’s family. The Quick Pickle Kit is safe, quick, simple and natural way for consumers to pickle any vegetable. #SLO #SLOCal #womanowned #values #integrity #kind #business #leader #centralcoast #US #SBA #award #news #press #media #PasoRoblesDailyNews #EsteroBayNews #KSBY #president #gov #SmallBusiness #women #local #SmallBusinessWeek #Mother #family #gift #CA #California #nonprofit #blog #entrepreneur #WomanOwnedBusiness #veg #grow #produce #sustainable #foodwaste #health #disabled #jobs #team #food #foodie #green #innovation #vision #LGBT #BigDill #QuickPickleKit
