Birrelee MACS went back to back, and then doubled down at the Quality Tamworth Business Awards on Friday night.
The local child care centre defended their crown by picking up the Leader's People's Choice award for the second year in a row, and then also went on to win the top gong for Education and Training.
The gala night saw a full house turn out at the TRECC, with both young business people and young businesses being honoured alongside some of the biggest names in the city.
While Obieco Industries, Pulse Kitchens, Wests Leagues Club, HCF and the Telstra Business Centre were all recognised with top honours, Brooke Carrington was honoured to be crowned Outstanding Young Entrepreneur for her work with Myo and Barn, while Ben Coombes was named Startup Superstar for the Welder's Dog.
Business Chamber president Jye Segboer said it was a shame that only 29 awards were won on the back of 434 outstanding entries.
"It's fantastic to see the enormous passion of all business-owners and their staff, whose daily hard work and dedication goes into producing great customer experiences," he said.
"This sense of passion and pride is what truly makes business in regional NSW stand out and I'd like to congratulate all the individuals and businesses for their exceptional contribution to the business community."
Following the business awards ceremony a true icon of the Tamworth community was honoured with the prestigious Noel Park Award.
"Local musician, philanthropist, sportsman and business person" John Muller OAM had his name engraved on the award this year, "for making a significant contribution to the growth of Tamworth".
