Thursday was a big day for Wenatchee-based Goodfellow Bros., with Dan, Steve and Chad Goodfellow first being named grand marshals of the 2022 Apple Blossom Festival and later that night the company receiving the Business of the Year award at the Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce banquet.

Chelan County TOGETHER! For Youth was named the chamber’s non-profit of the year.

Goodfellow Bros., a general contracting company, celebrated its 100 year in business in 2020. The company was established in Wenatchee and now has offices in Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii.

Senior Vice President Dan Goodfellow praised the company’s employees as he accepted the Business of the Year award.

“I’m certainly accepting this award on behalf of all our employees,” Dan Goodfellow said. “I know they’re very proud.”

The chamber also gave Cornerstone Awards to Bruce Beckett of the Beckett Group; Donny Guerrero of Molina Healthcare; and another to the hospitality industry.

In naming Goodfellow Bros. the 2022 grand marshals, the Apple Blossom said the honor originally was planned for 2020, the company’s 100th year, but the COVID-19 pandemic led to the cancellation of the festival that year.

“The theme for the 2022 Apple Blossom Festival is ‘Celebrating our Roots’ and we can’t think of a better Grand Marshal that fits our theme than Goodfellow. Bros.” said Linda Herald, 2022 festival director general.
