If you follow us on Instagram (and if you don't, you can check us out here!) you might've noticed us getting very excited about the JCI Dublin Friendly Business Awards. Not just because of the gorgeous venue and delicious cupcakes, but because we won Best Customer Care 2016! 

JCI (Junior Chamber International) are the world's biggest network for young entrepreneurs. Their awards celebrate small businesses in the local community (in this case, Dublin) and we were so delighted to be nominated for Best Customer Care, one of six categories in the awards.

The ceremony itself took place at Mansion House with the after party at Sam's Bar on Dawson Street. Myself, Steve, Tanya, Aoife and Anna all headed to the awards with no expectations - to be honest, we were just thrilled to be nominated and to be there. 

We honestly can't thank our customers enough for the nomination. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who has ever supported us, shopped with us, liked our Facebook posts or even just popped in to say hello! This award has made us want to work harder and to keep providing our customers with all the care they need. And to our amazing team - without you guys, we would not be here. We are so lucky to have the best team here at Siopaella and this award is really because of you guys caring so much so thank you! 

xx Ella
