MUSTARD Seed Podiatry in Bayswater is vying for a Health Services Business of the Year award next week, after winning the Enterprise of the Year at the 25th Belmont and WA Small Business Awards.
The business, founded in March 2016 by married couple Samuel Ong and Lydia Cheung, is the sole WA finalist selected in the Optus MyBusiness Awards.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Sydney on November 9.
The business was previously nominated for these awards in 2016.
Dr Cheung said it was a great feeling to see her and her partner’s hard work paid off.
“The process of completing the award entry was rewarding, but challenging,” she said.
“We dug deep to reflect on what we had achieved, how we had adapted as a business and how we had overcome different obstacles in the last 12 months.
“Now that we are on the other end, it is a pretty special experience because Optus MyBusiness Awards is one of the biggest national awards in the small business sector.”
Dr Cheung said the business had a competitive edge over nominees as it was the only certified B Corporation business – an international certification they gained after showing strong transparency in all areas.
She said over the past two years, they have introduced new services, equipment and improved systems.
“We think it’s important to run a business that people can trust,” she said.
“We really could only get to where we are today because of the ongoing support of our clients, many of which are residents in the area and some who travel far to see us.”
