Merton Best Business Awards Finalists


This year’s awards shortlist shines a light on Merton’s vibrant and diverse business community.

Now in their 10th year, the Merton Best Business Awards celebrate and recognise the local business community with a range of prestigious awards.

The judging panel, made up of representatives from local businesses, received a fantastic number of applications for award categories including Champions of Change, Independent Business Award, Best New Business, Sustainable Impact Award and Entrepreneur of the Year. Members of the public were also invited to join the judging process by voting for their favourite local business that is offering outstanding customer service. This year the Business Innovation Award is being sponsored by Love Wimbledon.

CEO of Merton Chamber of Commerce, Diana Sterck, said: “We were thrilled that so many local businesses applied for this year’s awards. The judges were blown away by the stories of resilience, innovation and excellence that they read, and it was harder than ever to whittle down a shortlist. Every Merton business should feel exceptionally proud of their journey over the past couple of years and we are looking forward to celebrating at our gala awards ceremony in September.”
