State Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today presented Corbin Pacific, located in Hollister, with the 12th Senate District’s Small Business of the Year award during a ceremony in Sacramento.
“Mike Corbin and the more than 110 employees at Corbin Pacific deserve to be commended for their work and contributions to Hollister. As an avid biker, I truly appreciate the quality motorcycle seats and accessories Corbin has been producing over the past 5 decades,” said Senator Cannella. “I was proud to present Mike Corbin with the Small Business of the Year award to recognize just how important his company is to the community.”
Co-sponsored by a coalition of small business organizations, California Small Business Day provides legislators and advocacy organizations a unique opportunity to honor the important role small businesses play in communities across California.
There are approximately 3.6 million small businesses in California, representing 99% of the state’s employers and 52% of California’s private-sector employment. Since the award’s establishment in 2000, legislators have recognized small businesses in their districts for their contributions to the local economy and for their community and charitable service.
