Tulsa, OK May 1, 2014 - Curtis Restaurant Supply announces its designation as a HUBZone Company.

The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. Much of the eastern half of Oklahoma has been designated as a HUBZone area. CRS provided substantial documentation to the U.S. Small Business Administration, the federal entity responsible for this program. The Company had to meet specific ownership, financial, and employee residency requirements to qualify.

Many federal agencies have a statutory goal to commit 3% of their annual budget to HUBZone companies. CRS is one of the few foodservice equipment and smallwares dealers in the United States that qualifies for this program.
