DUXBURY, Mass. -- VERC Enterprises has received the 2014 Best of Plymouth Award in the Convenience Stores category, an honor it has taken for seven consecutive years to qualify the company for inclusion in the Plymouth Business Hall of Fame.

Each year, the Plymouth Award Program identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category; it recognizes these businesses for their ability to enhance the positive image of small-business service to their customers and community.

To select the winners in each category, the Plymouth Award Program gathered and analyzed various sources of information. It determined award recipients based on the information gathered both internally and data provided by third parties.

"It is an honor to once again receive the Best of Plymouth Award in the Convenience Stores category," said Leo Vercollone, president of VERC Enterprises. "And taking a place in the Hall of Fame makes everyone in our fine professional family proud; our commitment to the communities we serve is steadfast."
