American Furniture Warehouse's President and CEO, Jake Jabs, has recently been honored by both the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, which serves one of the fastest growing regions in the state - four counties just north of Denver, and ColoradoBiz magazine, one of Colorado's top business publications. At its annual gala earlier this month, the Metro North Chamber of Commerce presented Jabs with its Businessperson of the Year Award. Nominated by the Chamber's general membership, the award was presented to Jabs for his outstanding commitment to the Metro North region and the businesses located within it. American Furniture Warehouse's Thornton Super Store/Warehouse one of the company's largest locations and is one of the largest businesses in the region served by the Metro North Chamber. In addition to being honored for his business contributions and success, Jabs was also recognized for his outstanding track record of giving back to the community through his work the hundreds of Colorado non-profit organizations he supports each year. In addition to the Businessperson of the Year Award, ColoradoBiz magazine has ranked American Furniture Warehouse the largest family-owned enterprise in the state - taking the number one spot from Coors Brewing Company.

American Furniture Warehouse employs 1,600 people throughout the state, and Jabs' immediate family has been active in the company since it was founded in 1975. "Of course, I am always proud when our contributions and continued growth are recognized like this, but I have to say that even if we never received any accolades, providing our customers excellent service and giving back to the community would always be two of our top priorities. Not only because doing so is good business - but because it is simply what we love to do," Jabs said.
