Business Recognition Program

Calvert City launched the recognition program to spotlight local businesses and individuals that add value and pride to our community.

Calvert businesses bolster the economy, provide quality jobs, and most importantly, create community and culture. Through the Calvert City Recognition Program, we can give due credit to the remarkable contributions these businesses have given our city.

The program will celebrate businesses that:

– are leading the way and selflessly adding to the richness of our city.
– enhancing the quality of life for our residents.
– have the best interest of our community in mind.

While we know there are many businesses giving back to the community every day, one business will be recognized every quarter.
