Renfro Foods, along with other outstanding family businesses within the state of Texas, will be recognized on Nov. 19 during the Awards Reception Banquet event at the new Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation on the Baylor University Campus in Waco, Texas.

"This is truly a wonderful honor for our family as we celebrate our 75th anniversary," said Doug Renfro, president. "Along with my third generation management cousins Becky Renfro Borbolla and James Renfro, we are so grateful for the hard work, integrity and contributions of our entire multi-generational family—which includes my father and uncle, each of whom spent half a century building the business—and our dedicated staff, who work each day with the principles and work ethics instilled through time by my grandparents who founded the company, George and Arthurine Renfro."

The Texas Family Business of the Year Awards Program recognizes multi-generational, family-owned firms whose families demonstrate a commitment to each other, to their employees, to the community and to business continuity. Texas Family Business of the Year firms are recognized in three size categories and several special categories recognizing: Family Values, Excellent Management, Community Commitment, Rapid Growth, Stewardship, Founders, and Heritage Awards.
