A&W’s Nick Nuraney was recipient of the chamber’s George Preston Business Person of the Year award.
Back in 1978, when the Nuraney family first came from North Vancouver to Langley to check out a rural A&W drive-in as a business opportunity, from his perch in the back seat young Nick thought the drive would never end.
Forty years later, the family is not only still involved in operating the Langley A&W restaurants, but Nick – now owner of nine stores – was singled out for this week for recognition as an outstanding Langley entrepreneur.
He was crowned the business person of the year by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Thursday night (Oct, 25,2018) before a crowd of 300 at the Cascades Casino.
“It feels a little overwhelming,” Nuraney told Black Press just moments after being presented the award during the chamber’s 22nd annual Business Excellence celebrations.
“I think my heart is beating like crazy. It was an honour to be nominated and then when I won, I just couldn’t believe that I won,” Nuraney said.
“Nick is a principled gentleman who epitomizes traits such as compassion, honour, and friendship,” the co-emcee said. “He quietly lends his financial support, volunteer time, and business expertise to causes that are important to the Langley community and that have a real impact.”
