Thursday, October 18, the Better Business Bureau held the fifth annual Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics celebration at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. Johnson Storage & Moving Co. was named this year’s winner, after prevailing in the following selection process:
· 475 nominations
· 14 selected for consideration
· 9 semi-finalists
· 3 finalists
The award highlights the BBB’s undertaking “to promote and foster the highest ethical marketplace relationships.” There is just one Torch Award winner because the BBB “believes that amid our diverse and growing regional business community, there is a core belief in building relationships based on trust.” This award reflects the work of the Johnson Storage & Moving Co. locations of Centennial, Denver and Longmont for overall business in the Denver/Boulder area.
For more than 100 years, the Johnson family has been in the transportation business. The firm is now owned and operated by fourth generation family members; Mark Johnson & Jim Johnson. Since its founding in Denver in 1900, the company has expanded to nine locations in five states.
