What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
Kettle Creek Corporation takes pride in being a US company who manufactures their products using post-consumer, recycled content. Some of our bins utilize resources taken out of local waste streams. Because recycling is important in communities to maintain a clean and beautiful environment, everyone who collects can see their efforts have not been in vain when using our bins. An example of how our bins can teach and promote this effort to students and future citizens, is pictured above at an elementary school with children and teaches participating. Our bins help bring others together to do great things for the environment.

How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
I had contact with SCORE Mentors in Bucks County, PA in the Doylestown and Jenkintown areas. They were very astute professionals involved with finance and marketing and were able to evaluate my business at a time when I was dealing with many budgetary challenges. I was grateful for the assistance they provided me. It encouraged me to rewrite my business plan which clarified future goals.
Please describe the specific ways that your business has been successful and how it will grow in the next year.
Kettle Creek Corporation has been successful in promoting a Closed-Loop, Green and Sustainable economy. We obtained local HDPE directly out of the waste stream, processed it into usable content for making a useful, attractive, economical and long-lasting recycling and waste bin for consumers' use. In 2015, the PA Recycling Markets Center honored us with the William M. Hennan, Jr. Award for our commitment to the use of recycled materials in manufacturing. We foresee growth in customers wanting a product that truly is Sustainable.
