Saybrook Home was named a 2019 Hartford Business Journal Family Business Awards finalist and fourth place winner of the 26-75 full-time employees award.  The Family Business Awards honor achievements of the top family-owned companies in Connecticut who have had particularly strong successes over the last 12 months: completing expansions, growing in the marketplace, fulfilling major projects and breaking new ground in the local and state business community.

Nearly 25 nominations were submitted for the annual competition this year from a wide range of industries.  Winners and finalists were identified for what sets them apart from the competition, how they have stayed ahead in the marketplace and how they remain true to their founding family business principles in a modern world.

“Saybrook Home is honored to receive this Family Business Award and we want to thank our entire team for their passion and commitment to our clients, says Keith A. Bolles, co-owner of Saybrook Home. 
“We are honored to be recognized in such an incredible selection of family-owned companies in our state.  After 42 years in business, we, along with many of the other recipients know that the key to long-term success is treating everyone like family, including employees and customers.”

In late 2018, and after 40 plus years in the business, Saybrook Home was rebranded from Saybrook Country Barn in under 9 months.  From a new logo and website to signs and shopping bags, one year later the store is experiencing continued growth and recognition.
