This year’s judges were impressed with the winning companies’ resilience and adaptability that allowed them to turn the challenges of the past 20 months into remarkable growth numbers, their exemplary dedication to their customers in matters small and large, and particularly, many winners’ efforts to maintain and deepen their commitment to the environment and local communities.

We expect that Donuts’ Best in Biz Awards achievement will demonstrate the worldwide success of descriptive domains and accelerate their adoption and use.”
