MASSAGE GREEN SPA
Small Business of the Year
Presented September 24, 2015
Massage Green Spa opened their doors two years ago in Pavilions Place Shopping Center on Beach Boulevard in Westminster. Their mission is to offer massages as a "A Luxury that Everyone Can Afford." Their customer service model—giving a 100% healing experience to their clients—is working. It’s been proven by their need to expand their staff by more than double in order to meet the needs of their growing clientele list. The goal of Massage Green Spa is to provide the highest quality massage and facial services in a safe and comfortable setting at a affordable price. They use environmentally friendly products and offer a variety of therapeutic massages and European facials tailored to meet the individual need of each client.
Before opening their doors in early 2014, Massage Green Spa joined Westminster Chamber of Commerce. Since then they have become an important contributor to the community giving much more than a well-run business with a sincerely friendly staff. This year, Massage Green Spa took part in the annual Kaiser Permanente National Cancer Survivors Day by offering complimentary chair massages and education to those attending. They have also served at many local marathons, including those in Long Beach Marathon and Huntington Beach, by giving free massages. The owners of the Spa recognized the importance of affordably restoring individual mobility through natural therapeutic methods, so they teamed up with a local medical group and soon will be accepting qualified medical insurance.
Several of the Massage Green Spa staff have joined local organizations to volunteer their time. Their work has included sponsoring a local girls softball team and taking part in a National Night Out event. One of the Spa’s top therapists, Ed Knighton, attended a five-month Neighborhood Leadership Program. The main goal of the program was to help with adult and child literacy and gathered over 3,000 books through private donations and local book stores.
For these reasons, Westminster Chamber of Commerce is proud to name Massage Green Spa as the 2014-2015 Small Business of the Year!
WESTMINSTER MEMORIAL PARK & MORTUARY
Major Business of the Year
Presented September 24, 2015
Westminster Memorial Park and Mortuary, in business for 91 years, is a company that is dedicated to compassionately supporting families at difficult times, celebrating the significance of lives that have been lived, and preserving the memories that transcend generations, with dignity and honor. Besides the Memorial Park itself, they have two funeral homes, a flower shop, and a crematory.
The values that fuel Westminster Memorial Park and Mortuary’s interaction with the community are Integrity, Respect, Service Excellence, and creating Enduring Relationships with our customers, business partners, and employees.
Each year Westminster Memorial Park and Mortuary sponsors programs by the American Legion and Hope for Healing Hands, and donates to the Westminster Police Officers Association’s Memorial Foundation. To serve our community, the Memorial Park presents ceremonies for the Vietnamese Boat People Monument in April, the Memorial Day Service in May, the Phap Hoi Dia Tang in September, and the Dia De Los Muertos in November. These are in addition to two nights of the Memorial Park’s own Celebration of Life Service, and the “Trees of Remembrance” that are kept in their lobby throughout the holiday season.
The Memorial Park is a 50-Year Member of Westminster Chamber of Commerce and a valued supporter of Chamber activities and events including two years as a Sapphire Signature Sponsor of the Chamber’s Glitz and Grapes annual event, a long-time sponsor of the California Highway Patrol in the Chamber’s annual Spirit of Westminster Awards Luncheon, and more.
For several years, Memorial Park employees have participated in the American Diabetes Association’s “Step Out” walk, the “Every 15 Minutes” programs at several Orange County high schools, and since its inception the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life-Westminster.”
For this and so much more, Westminster Chamber of Commerce is proud to name Westminster Memorial Park and Mortuary as the 2014-2015 Major Business of the Year!
