The Entrepreneur of the Year Award — awarded last year to the McMahon Family of Door County Brewing Co. & Music Hall in Baileys Harbor — celebrates those individuals who have taken the initiative to start and grow a successful small business in Door County.
The Industry of the Year award recognizes a construction, service or manufacturing business that has made a substantial impact on the community, and has enjoyed significant accomplishments during the past year. This year marks the 46th year of this prestigious award, first presented by the Door County Chamber of Commerce in 1973. Last year’s award winner was Door County Medical Center.
The honor for a lifetime of work – Door County Lifetime Achievement Award – was awarded to Fran Shefchik in 2018.
This award honors individuals who have spent 20+ years of their career or of their life, building, operating and/or owning business(es) in Door County that have had a uniquely positive and lasting impact on the Door County economy and business landscape, and who actively participate in civic and community development. This honor will be awarded as-merited (not necessarily annually).
