CAM Tech, Inc. was awarded because owner Joseph Kreuser takes an extremely active role in promoting the Chamber’s mission to support local and small businesses. Joe’s business does not receive direct benefits from these activities, yet he has a drive to help create a strong community. He is always positive, shares thought provoking ideas, promotes small businesses, has great community awareness, and generously donates his time, efforts, and resources to many organizations, start up businesses, and young entrepreneurs. This year’s recipient is well-deserving of the award for the great impact made on the Chamber specifically and the  business community at large. 


The Lodge Muskego was awarded for being quite active in both the community and Chamber. Their representatives are concerned and hands-on toward creating a healthy community. They encourage other businesses to do the same and are always willing to help make the community a better place. They received multiple nominations citing their support of other businesses, the community, and the Chamber’s mission through volunteer work and any opportunity to help us be a better place. The Chamber staff appreciate the extra work their representative has done among our committees, especially the Jammin’ on Janesville committee. 

Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee received this award for their continual support and engagement within our community, especially in supporting important causes that make our community better. Their team cares deeply about our community and supports other businesses, organizations, and entities with volunteer work, donations, sponsorships, and fundraisers. Through a phenomenal fundraiser last year, this business raised an astounding $40,000 for the Tess Corners Fire Department to purchase much needed, life-saving equipment. This is by no means a one-time scenario as they have raised funds for many other important causes. 


Vintage Grounds Coffeehouse received this award based on their continual support of our community, businesses, the Chamber of  Commerce, and numerous fundraising efforts that help with quality of life in the Muskego area. Since purchasing the business, owners Erin and Ryan have done a phenomenal job of creating a homelike atmosphere where community and friends can gather.

Kathy Miller of Tealightful Tea received this award for her continual support of other small business owners, her active participation in the Chamber's Women Business Connections group as both a steering committee member and attendee, and her constant promotion to other Small Business owners on the excitement, potential, and profitability to being a Muskego Chamber business member.
