By Floyd Miller
Garcia’s State Farm Agency Named Small Business Of The Year By The Abilene Business Council Of The Abilene Chamber Of Commerce
The Small Business of the Year award recognizes a business with long-term success that has contributed to the community’s quality of life and exemplifies Abilene’s strong work ethic and ability to overcome business challenges. The business must be locally owned and operated, must be a chamber member in good standing for at least two years and the business must be in operation for a minimum of three years.
Garcia established his State Farm Insurance agency in 1996. His staff provides auto, home and property, life and health insurance, banking products, annuities and mutual funds. The business has grown and continues to grow due to Garcia’s commitment to personalized service including making sure his clients have his personal cell number, according to a news release from the chamber.
“We are proud to be honoring Sammy and his staff with this award,” said Doug Peters, chamber president and CEO. “They are a true example of the entrepreneurial spirit and excellence in customer service that make our community great.”
Garcia serves as the chairman of the Hispanic Business Council, the vice chairman of Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas board, is a board member for the Family & Consumer Sciences/Better Living for Texans Task Force, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and a member of the chamber’s Youth Leader Day Committee.
