During the virtual broadcast of the 2020 State of the Chamber on June 26th, the Tempe Chamber of Commerce awarded two outstanding Tempe businesses with the 2020 Business Excellence Award — Boulders on Broadway and Chasse Building Team. Each year, these awards are given in both the small and large category to businesses whose practice in business and employee development, community involvement and customer service exemplify excellence.

The committee then conducts in-person interviews before selecting the recipients.
