The Business View – August 2019 / Small Business of the Year Finalist
A construction company, an accounting firm and a hospitality destination represent the Mobile Area Chamber’s 2019 Small Business of the Year award finalists. They are BCM Morring Co., Crow Shields Bailey PC and The Stewart Lodges. The winner will be announced at an awards breakfast on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 8 a.m. at the Mobile Convention Center.
A panel of judges reviewed a number of applications with five primary criteria in mind – staying power, economic impact, innovation, community contribution and strategy. Meet our finalists:
The Stewart Lodges
President and CEO: Jennie Campbell
Number of employees: 5
Address: 32311 Waterview Dr. E., Loxley
Twenty miles outside of Mobile, tucked within the 1,500-acre Steelwood community, are The Stewart Lodges in Loxley. Two properties with private guest rooms overlook either a stocked, 200-acre freshwater lake or a top-rated golf course designed by former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate. The property has found a niche with corporate retreats and strategic planning meetings. In addition to meeting space, catering and personal chef services, the Stewart Lodges team stands out because they use their expertise to help onsite meetings with everything from program design to marketing to implementation. The Stewart Lodges has been called the “best-kept secret in the South.” President and CEO Jennie Campbell hopes this is “one secret her customers cannot keep.”
