Jason and Lisa Spark’s Quality Printer Cartridges was also a finalist in the customer service award in the Joondalup Business Association-run awards at Joondalup resort on Friday night.

Association president David Curry said the awards, which included new categories of best retail business and online initiative, had attracted several new and young faces.

The judging panel included Small Business Centre Joondalup manager Mark Diggins, former McDonald’s franchise owner Neil Platts and Seascapes Mindarie owner and previous leadership award winner Alan Green.

Association chief executive Clive Haddow said a point or two separated winners in some categories.

‘The most competition was the new business award with eight finalists,’ he said.
