The Empress of Little Rock has been named winner of the Google Upticks Awards contest.  Five winners were chosen nationally based on their ability to tackle business challenges, increase business productivity and tap into new opportunities.  As part of the award, a film crew from Google and the Arkansas Small Business Development Center recorded a professional video highlighting the unique features of The Empress and the staff’s progressive use of Google internet tools that was featured at the 2011 Small Business Development Conference.

When apprised of the award, marketing director and owner Sharon Welch-Blair was elated.  “We’ve worked very hard during this recession to come back even stronger than we began.  Thanks to wonderful programs like the Arkansas Small Business Development Center, their incredible employees and tools like Google Analytics, we’ve emerged on the other side ready for the new 21st Century economy.”
