We are happy to announce that we have recently acquired a certificate for the Central Certification Program (CERT) sponsored by Hennepin County, Ramsey County, and the City of Saint Paul. This means that our company meets the requirements for Small and Woman Business Enterprise (S/WBE). Chowgirls will now be listed in that database and directory and we are thrilled to offer this added value for clients with supplier diversity programs. We want to thank our Event Specialist Lindsay Erstad for completing this arduous process on our behalf with a smile on her face! Thank you Lindsay!
