TerraTrike wins LocalMotion Award
TerraTrike, creator of the world’s most comfortable cycles, was awarded Local First’s LocalMotion award for Best Longstanding Business with a Triple Bottom Line. Local First hosts an annual award celebration to recognize and honor local Grand Rapids businesses for their contribution to the community. The Triple Bottom Line combines the social, environmental, and financial aspects of business into a sustainable method for successful business management.
“Not only is Grand Rapids one of the best places to live and raise a family in the nation, it’s also one of the best places to do business,” said Marketing Director Jeff Yonker. “Local First has definitely helped develop this environment.”
TerraTrike has been recognized by other organizations for its contribution to the community, but this is the first time they have been recognized by the Local First organization.
“It’s nice to be acknowledged for doing the right thing,” said Yonker. “We’re very honored to have been selected for this award. Grand Rapids is full of thriving, innovative local business, and we’re very proud to be recognized amongst them.”
