MINNEAPOLIS (February 7, 2011) — Embroidery and logowear company Thread Logic has been named the 2010 Business Builder of the Year by Minnesota-based Upsize magazine. Thread Logic founder and owner Jeff Taxdahl was selected to receive the recognition after he and three other finalists presented their business-building ideas to a panel of judges in December. Taxdahl is featured on the current December/January 2011 Upsize cover and in an eight-page article, available http://www.thread-logic.com/Thread_Logic_News_Room.aspx
UpSize’s annual contest recognizes business-building best practices from small business owners based in Minnesota, and the impact of the best practices on company performance and value in helping other business owners. Taxdahl’s award-winning best practice focused on his success in reaching more customers and increasing sales by developing a strategic Internet marketing model combined with a pay-per-click advertising strategy to build a customer base from across the country.
“Jeff’s solid business plan impressed our judges, making Thread Logic stand out among an impressive field of finalists,” says Beth Ewen, editor and co-founder of Upsize Minnesota.
“He is the 2010 Upsize Business Builder of the Year, selected for his smart move to electronic commerce after two years in business, his skillful execution of the strategy that led to 20 percent average growth in each of the past four years, and his advice that other small-business owners can use to expand their own companies.”
“We’re honored to be recognized by Upsize for our business strategy and Web-based approach,” says Taxdahl. “We look forward to continued growth not only for Thread Logic, but we hope that sharing what we’ve found to be successful helps other small businesses to grow, including those in the embroidery industry.”
The Upsize recognition is the latest in a series of awards given to Thread Logic over the past several months. Thread Logic also received the 2010 Better Business Bureau Integrity Award, and Taxdahl was named a 2010 Minnesotan on the Move by Finance and Commerce.
