Cashco of Ellsworth, Kansas has won a statewide award for manufacturing/distribution from the Kansas Department of Commerce for the 2022 To the Stars: Kansas Business Awards.

The annual awards program recognizes businesses across the state for the valuable contributions they make to the Kansas economy and to the well-being of their communities.

Stacie Schmidt, director of Ellsworth Economic Development, nominated Cashco for the award back in August. “We learned of the opportunity to recognize our community for regional and state awards through the Department of Commerce.”

“Annually, we try to identify at least one business that we feel strongly deserves recognition or has stood out for an outstanding accomplishment. We are proud that our nomination was selected by the scoring committee and that Cashco was chosen for a well-deserved and long waited award,” said Stacie.

“To have been nominated for this award is significant,” said Clint M Rogers, president of Cashco. “We have enjoyed working within this community for almost 50 years. To be recognized as a valued member at the local level is special because we want to be a great partner for our employees, local towns, schools, and local businesses.”

The Kansas Department of Commerce hosted a statewide awards banquet on October 20th in Topeka. An all-time high of 237 businesses, organizations, and individuals were nominated in 10 categories for this year’s To the Stars: Kansas Business Awards.

Nominees were reviewed and scored for various criteria such as business expansion, employee recruitment and retention practices, training and educational programs, capital investments, and support of local community events.

A total of 181 Merit Awards and 56 Regional Awards were presented at the event. Additionally, one nominee in each category was designated a Statewide Winner, making them finalists for the Governor’s Award of Excellence.
