Better Business Bureau Serving the Northwest is proud to announce Susan's Green Cleaning as the 2017 Business of the Year for Western Washington. Susan's Green Cleaning is based in Seattle and was accredited in 2016.
Owner Susan Stocker shared how BBB first contacted her —before her business became accredited —regarding an advertisement she placed online. A BBB representative asked her to make some changes to her ad.
"They said 'we think something on your ad, basically isn't on the up-and-up,' and I thought 'wait a minute' so I went back, and I could see where there could be some kind of ambiguity," Stocker said. "I fixed it right away, but I remember being impressed and admiring the way (BBB) did that. That showed to me that Better Business Bureau works with ethics and integrity and that's in line with what I wanted."
Stocker said that interaction opened her eyes to BBB's mission of creating a marketplace of trust.
