We here at KDE Technology wanted to take this time to express our gratitude for being awarded the “Best in the Valley” in Kanawha and Putnam Counties. We could not have won this award without being surrounded by and working for some of the best local businesses around. Being able to serve fantastic businesses and help them expand themselves online is incredibly rewarding. Taking part in the success of those businesses is what motivates us every day. Working with companies of all sizes and giving them a pathway to digital success is what we do best. Being recognized by our community for doing so is an honor which we cannot overstate.
The “Best in the Valley” award is considered prestigious, and it was made possible to us only because of the fantastic base of customers and friends we have here in our home state. People here in West Virginia are loyal; just as we do business with West Virginians, West Virginians do business with us. We are so incredibly fortunate to have found success thanks to working with some amazing fellow local business owners.
Our customers provide quality products and services, so crafting a website to match their quality of work means that every site we create is of the highest-caliber. Small businesses in West Virginia are often willed into existence and maintained through sacrifice and heart. They inspire the creativity and drive reflected in the websites we design for them. Whether it’s as simple as a page to show the hours and address of a beauty salon, or a full blown e-commerce web store with API integration, the sites we create help already amazing businesses reach an even larger customer base.
One such business is Books and Brews. They started as a hometown hit in Hurricane, West Virginia, and quickly grew by word of mouth. Originally a bookstore and coffee shop, but expanding to become a full service restaurant by their second location, Pat Pelley knew the next step for Books and Brews was going online. As he put it, “Anytime you’re going to a restaurant… The first thing you do? Google them.” And, by working together with him to design a website he loved, we earned our very first customer and a lifelong friend. Pat put his faith in us to create a website worthy of his business and we put our faith in his business to attract more customers once we got it online. Fortunately, all that faith paid off, as BooksAndBrewsWV.com was well received by the community and continues to draw customers in from Charleston and beyond. We aim to continue to tell more stories like this, and continue giving back to business owners with our work.
