SM Daily Press:  Senator Ben Allen (D – Santa Monica) has named The Albright as Small Business of the Year for Senate District 26. The Albright, which was chosen for its commitment to sustainability and dedication to the Santa Monica community, received the award at a Sacramento luncheon sponsored by the California Small Business Association on Wednesday, June 19.

“It is my pleasure to recognize Greg Morena, Yunnie Kim Morena, and everyone at The Albright for serving generations of Santa Monicans on the Santa Monica Pier,” Senator Allen said. “They have been trailblazers in sustainability and greening efforts on the Pier and in the greater Santa Monica community by serving sustainable, locally sourced seafood and ingredients. This is a labor of love for the Morena family and they have done a fantastic job bolstering fellow Santa Monica businesses and engendering a sense of respect and social responsibility within the community.”

California Small Business Day 2019 honored 82 small businesses for their contributions to the state’s economy. Small business contributes to 75% of California’s gross domestic product and over half of the state’s private sector jobs. From hardware stores to manufacturers, small businesses are stalwarts of California’s communities and its economy.  Read more >
