Northwest Business Monthly held their 24th annual awards banquet on March 11, and Wes Herman was named the 2010 Business Person of the Year. Other finalists included Tony Bon of Samson Rope and Nancy Jordan of NW Economic Council. Wes Herman was presented the award by Tony Larson, Publisher of NW Business Monthly. Reasons for their choice included the many charitable endeavors of The Woods Coffee along with its growth and strong local presence in the community.

In his acceptance, Wes Herman spoke about the company’s commitment to their customers and staff. He thanked his family for their involvement and was quick to add that he is simply the point man for a family and staff that “makes things happen” in their nine stores. Herman stated; “The Woods Coffee’s mission is to serve others, make a difference and have fun!”
