DuPlooy Trucking won New Member of the Year due to their work with the Chamber and 4a board to bring an estimated 100 employees, consolidate and move their business to Wichita Falls, and joining the Chamber at the Chairman’s Council level. They continue to help us build a better Wichita Falls.
Small Business of the Year recognition went to B Cocoa Artisan Chocolate. This delightful specialty chocolate boutique moved and expanded to their new location in 2019 and has since been very involved in perpetuating the mission of the Chamber.
