Andy & Sons, a Canterbury pool shop in Sydney’s Inner West, has won the Specialised Retail Business category at the Australian Small Business Champions Awards.
The Australian Small Business Champion Awards assess small businesses across Australia on operations, marketing, online presence, achievements and growth in 43 categories. Proprietors Karri Nadazdy and Nicholas Virtue of Andy & Sons attended the awards presentation in April, hosted by Natarsha Belling of Network Ten.
As there is no pool/spa business category in the awards, Andy & Sons won their diverse category of Specialised Retail Business from a varied range of 12 finalists including a tennis centre, an electrical products business, a comic shop, and a travel accessories store.
“Like all small businesses, we work hard all year, so it’s really rewarding to be honoured with an award such as this,” says Nadazdy. “This is a really big year for Andy & Sons, and winning this award really is a wonderful surprise.”
Andy & Sons was established in 1972 by Nadazdy’s father and celebrates its 45th birthday this year. It has a large showroom-style store in Canterbury as well as a team of service technicians operating in Sydney’s Inner West. Nadazdy and Virtue have been running Andy & Sons since 2005.
