National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce honors Seattle's ZippyDogs for outstanding achievement in LGBT supplies diversity

SEATTLE - Last month, on Friday, November 22, Elise Lindborg and Kelli Henderson, leaders of ZippyDogs, a Seattle-based supplier of Made in USA and eco-friendly promotional products, traveled to Washington, D. C. to be honored at the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) National Dinner. This black-tie gala is dedicated to celebrating leading LGBT business owners and entrepreneurs, corporations and supplier diversity advocates, as well as government and community leaders. From a competitive field of applicants, ZippyDogs was selected as LGBT Supplier of the Year.

The LGBT Supplier of the Year award recognizes an exemplary certified LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) for their outstanding achievement and contribution to the development of LGBT supplier diversity. ZippyDogs assists companies to market their business through the creative use of eco-friendly and Made in USA promotional products. Earlier this year, ZippyDogs customers responded with overwhelming satisfaction to a service survey and described the company as innovative, responsive, reliable, friendly, and 'off the leash.' ZippyDogs is led by 'Top Dog' Elise Lindborg and 'Chili Dog' Kelli Henderson, who both attribute their company's growth in part due to the NGLCC's Supplier Diversity Initiative.

'The NGLCC has been pivotal to the success of ZippyDogs, and that makes this award extra special to us,' says Elise Lindborg. 'Not only do we provide products that we are proud to sell to our clients, we take every opportunity to educate our customers about eco-friendly, Made in USA products and supplier diversity. If we can help influence companies into this forward-thinking model of business, then we can wag our tails at the end of the day.'

ZippyDogs has been in business since 2000, however, the last three years have seen sustained growth for ZippyDogs. Since purchasing their World Headquarters and becoming an LGBT certified business in 2010, they have hired two employees, won two government contracts, and they are on par to make 2013 their best year in business yet. ZippyDogs is based in West Seattle.
