Miyake was nominated for this award by Jennifer Sporzynski, senior program director at CEI, who said, 'It has been a true honor working with Masa, originally helping him start his business so many years ago and now watching him bring his vision to life with his two restaurants and his farm. It is wonderful that the Small Business Administration has acknowledged his hard work (and delicious food) as well.'

Miyake will be honored at an SBA Reception on May 4, 2016 at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta.

Getchell Brothers was nominated for this award by Bangor Savings Bank. Mike Chamberlain of Bangor Savings said, 'At Bangor Savings Bank, we believe that the vibrancy of the State of Maine is driven by the success of Maine's businesses.

This award is presented to a family-owned and operated business with a 15-year track record that has been passed on from at least one generation to another.

'It is always heartwarming to see the creativity and determination that young entrepreneurs like James bring to their businesses,' said Marilyn Geroux, SBA district director for Maine. 'Thanks in part to assistance from the SBA's Small Business Development Center Program, James's business has grown very quickly. He is truly a role model for other young entrepreneurs in Maine,' she added.

Gallagher was nominated for this award by Donald Smith of Penobscot County Federal Credit Union, who said, 'I am proud to know James and even more proud of the fact that Penobscot County Federal Credit Union has been a part of his success. James's work ethic is incredible, and that is highlighted by the fact that he sold more than 10,000 whoopie pies in a one month period last summer while attending fairs and local shows.'

Home-based Business of the Year for Maine and New England: Ellen Thayer, owner of Love Rocks Me

This award is presented to a successful home-based business with at least a three-year track record.

'Many great ideas come from small, home-based businesses, and Love Rocks Me is no exception,' said Marilyn Geroux, SBA district director for Maine. 'Ellen's hard work, ingenuity and creativity make her a true role model for many of Maine's entrepreneurs and I am delighted to recognize her success with this award for Maine and New England,' she added.

Thayer was nominated for this award by Gigi Guyton of New Ventures Maine, who said, 'New Ventures Maine is thrilled that Ellen Thayer has been chosen for this award. It is well deserved. Ellen has used Maine's small business development resources wisely, and is committed to excellence.'

This award is presented to a U.S. Armed Forces Veteran who serves as the majority owner of a small business with at least a three-year track record.

'Mr. Wedge is a remarkable person,' said Marilyn Geroux, SBA District Director for Maine. 'He has served our country with distinction in the U.S. Air Force and has used many of the skills he learned in the military to successfully manage his own small business,' she added.

Wedge was nominated for this award by James Macomber of MaineStream Finance and has received financial support from the Small Business Administration through loan guarantees with Camden National Bank.
