LOGAN Country, take a bow. You’ve done your region proud at the 2018 Logan Business Distinction Awards.

Businesses from Logan’s rural south-west were big winners at the event, hosted by the combined Logan chambers of commerce – Logan Central, Beenleigh-Yatala, 4118 and, of course, our own Logan Country. Organisers received more than than 350 nominations and 100 submissions from across the city.

Logan knows how to make an awards night its own. Players dressed to the nines and walked their own mini-version of a red-carpet. The soundtrack rocked. Some of the best fun was to be had by the photo booth, where winners and others, laughed and dressed in funny hats and props ahead of happy snaps.

Logan Country won seven of 23 nominations with two of the big four awards won by businesses who live in Jimboomba and operate businesses elsewhere. You all know who you are. Congrats on a job well done.

A special shoutout to Thom & Ann’s, Yarrabilba, who had to attended two awards nights on Friday and found a creative way to keep seats at the table at both events.

While daddy and daughter duo Scott and Annabelle Roebig accepted a Logan Business Distinction Award for Restaurant and Catering, mum and son, Fi and Thom, were at nearby Dreamworld accepting a gong for best small business at South East Queensland Training Awards.

Scott and Fi are used to double shifts. Their cafe is a locals’ favourite, while their coffee vans and food truck are often found front centre at most major local events.

Logan is full of family businesses like Thom and Anne’s. If you check out our pics from the awards night, you’ll see little Annabelle wasn’t the only kid in the room at Logan Entertainment Centre on Friday, July 20.

Congratulations also to Georgia Handley, who won Queensland’s Young Trainee of the Year for her work at Aussie Adventures Child Care at Park Ridge.
