The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 2018 Seattle District Encore Entrepreneur of the Year is Ross and Trivonna Irwin, resident and vice president, of Cabinets by Trivonna in Lacey, Washington. Founded in 2006, Cabinets by Trivonna custom designs kitchens and other cabinet-based needs for home-owners and contractors within the state of Washington and Northern Oregon.
The local cabinet designer not only opened a business that survived through the Great Recession, but thrived by filling an industry niche focusing solely on product design and not production. They now employ four full-time designers and refer all their actual construction work out to other local contractors; creating more local work and profit.
“The work they do in designing these cabinets and kitchens is amazing in itself,” SBA Seattle District Director Kerrie Hurd said. “But their commitment to keep the actual construction work local is also vital. The more success they have the more success the community has; that’s what makes a business community thrive.”
