MANAYUNK, PHILADELPHIA — A staple of the Manayunk foodie scene has earned national recognition from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
Winnie’s Manayunk recently announced its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“This recognition is a great honor for me and also for my team, who share this success,” said owner Winnie Clowry. “The WBENC certification aligns with our values here at Winnie’s and our commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion. I believe we have a great responsibility to set an example for other women-owned organizations and to minorities, leading with goodwill and kindness, guiding you on the path to success.”
The WBENC certification is one of the most recognized and respected national certifications for women-owned businesses in the United States.
To become a WBENC Certified WBE, Winnie’s Manayunk underwent a rigorous certification process, including an extensive company review.
The process is designed to confirm that the business is more than 51% owned, operated and/or controlled by a woman.
As they enter their 20 years in business with their unique values and mindset, Winnie’s Manayunk has not only provided healthy menu options to its customers, but has also always gone the extra mile to support organizations. nonprofits, businesses and members within the surrounding communities.
Winnie’s most recent venture was born after she named the restaurant to be Philadelphia’s first women’s triathlon caterer, donating food items to more than 2,000 athletes.
Additionally, Winnie’s has been the preferred caterer for several iconic Philadelphia events including the Broad Street Run, Philadelphia Marathon and Dad Vail Regatta.
“We will continue to elevate ourselves as a leader in the restaurant industry by building on our values and what has gotten us to this point all these years,” Clowry said. “Being WBE certified only motivates me and my team to reach new heights!”
