Business of the Quarter
At its monthly Breakfast Connection, the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce presented Creative Upholstery with the Business of the Quarter Award.
Rosemary Vasquez, owner, has built her business on high quality work at reasonable prices. They perform upholstery jobs from tiny to huge.
Dave Derosier nominated Creative Upholstery for the award and said, “I have heard about them from many people – all positive reports; I have never heard of a dissatisfied customer. The business is located on Martin Street (also known as Snake Road) in Pinehurst. For years this has been one of the most littered streets in the area. Creative Upholstery ‘adopted’ the street from Strickland Drive up to Park Avenue and Ms. Vasquez pays out of her own pocket to have people pick up the trash along the street. It has never looked so clean.”
Ms. Vasquez has volunteered with the Chamber and worked at the VIP tent at the Showdown on the Sabine Tunnel Boat Races. She has also recently become a volunteer for Southeast Texas Hospice.
Creative Upholstery has successfully filled an important niche in the community satisfying both residential and commercial customers at reasonable prices. GOACC believes that they deserve not only the recognition for their accomplishments but also the encouragement that a Business of the Quarter award delivers.

Way Service Ribbon Cutting
The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for Way Service. Way is one of the nation’s largest and most experienced mechanical contractors, specializing in the design/build of commercial air conditioning, plumbing/piping, energy retrofits, and the maintenance of these systems. Operating a business in today’s competitive environment is difficult. Focus on productivity and service is paramount. Way can provide you with a broad spectrum of short and long-term solutions for you and your building so that you can focus on your core business. Their commitment to building excellence began 90 years ago, and four generations later, will continue into the future. Way was one of the first companies in the 1980s to utilize performance contracting to track energy efficiency and to use energy savings to pay for building improvements. Innovation and education remain two of the cornerstones of the Way “building excellence” philosophy.
