The Business Journal’s Family-Owned Business Awards program honors family businesses that make up the backbone of the American economy. From small boutique operations to large multi-generational firms, these entrepreneurial families are building business legacies that will last for generations to come.

More than two thirds of privately held businesses in the U.S. are family-owned firms.

The Business Journal will be celebrating the family-owned businesses in the Central Valley that are successful, growing and moving America forward. Honorees will be profiled in The Business Journal and celebrated at an exclusive awards celebration in July.
