The award for the Surrey-based business, which boasts 19 stores throughout B.C. and Alberta, was, a sweet success for Fruiticana President and Founder Tony Singh.

Singh – who started Fruiticana in 1994 – said he was particularly proud of this latest award because the winner was chosen by the people.
