SALT LAKE CITY, May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Utah Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration named Incorporate Massage '2016 Women-Owned Business of the Year' at their awards luncheon in Salt Lake City.
The company provides onsite massage services to organizations across the United States.
"This is such an honor to receive this recognition for our growth and service in the community," said Amelia Wilcox, founder and CEO of Incorporate Massage.
Criteria for the award included community involvement and business growth based on increases in revenue, number of employees and number of locations.
"When we began this business six years ago, I never dreamed it would grow this quickly. We have doubled and tripled revenue every year and that kind of growth has really stretched us as a team," said Wilcox.
Wilcox launched her company in 2010 in a down economy when companies were not spending extra money on their staff, yet they have managed to grow rapidly each year they've been in business.
"We couldn't be doing what we're doing without the strength my team has shown to bear the stress and pressures that are unique to developing a rapidly growing company," Wilcox said.
Wilcox donates her time by mentoring and public speaking throughout the community. Her company sponsors the 'Taking Care of Teachers' program, which provides massages to deserving schools during Teacher Appreciation week.
Ann Marie Wallace of the Women's Business Center at the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce nominated Wilcox and her company for the award.
"I am impressed with Amelia and felt she deserved the nomination," Wallace said. "She is an inspiration to women business leaders everywhere."
