What It Means to Win Arlington’s Best Business Award

July 2013 — In June 2013, Lyndsey DePalma’s House of Steep, was awarded Arlington’s Best Business Award.

“This is a big accomplishment in this county, which I believe is one of the best places to do business in Northern Virginia,” says DePalma, noting House of Steep won because it demonstrated significant growth, and that it has had an exemplary impact on the community. “I am blown away by this honor.”

“Being only 8 months old, it was unlikely that we’d win such a prestigious award. What sets House of Steep apart from other fast-growing businesses in the county is largely that our hearts are still in the right place. Much of our growth is a direct correlation of caring for the community that has cared so much to ensure our success. In the weeks since the announcement, that confirmation has grounded me and my team as we ride the start-up wave.”
