Small Business of the Year
Local Family Business Recognized by State Assembly
Assemblymember Brian Maienschein recently recognized Greenway Irrigation Lawn and Landscape as Assembly District 77’s Small Business of the Year. “Greenway Irrigation Lawn and Landscape is an example of what every business should be,” said Assemblymember Maienschein. “This small business is known throughout the community for its commitment to superior customer service and commendable business ethics.” The landscape company is owned by Rancho Bernardo resident Scott Lawn, who is also an active community volunteer, serving as president of the Rancho Bernardo Business Association and as a volunteer with the North San Diego Business Chamber and the Poway Chamber of Commerce.
“The one thing that most struck me when we received this award was the select group that we were included with,” said Scott. “Only 75 small businesses in the entire State of California out of 3.5 million were chosen.”
His son and business partner Alex Lawn added, “We are so proud that the company that we have worked so hard to build was recognized as a quality leader in the irrigation, lawn, and landscape industry.”
Each year the California Small Business Association asks legislators to nominate a Small Business of the Year from their district that has demonstrated exemplary business ethics and community service. Honorees travel to the state capitol and are presented with a special award recognizing their contributions. Assembly District 77 includes the communities of Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Peñasquitos, 4S Ranch, and others.
