Albany- Business is always in full force at Pip Printing.

Whether, the company is printing event programs, wedding announcements or invitations, they always have at least twenty-five jobs going on at one time.

Leland and Virginia Burkart have been operating for eighteen years. They say there's no secret to their success, just lots of hard work, which is why the Burkarts' received top honors at the Albany Chamber of Commerce's Small Business of the Year, "Rise and Shine" breakfast, and they say this award proves they are meeting the needs of the community.

Every community needs successful small businesses, like PIP printing, according to key note speaker, Lee Jenkins, president and CEO of the Jenkins Financial Group.

Lee Jenkins says small businesses are often overlooked, but they also encounter many of the hardships big businesses experience.

The Burkarts say they will continue to operate a business committed to giving back to the community that has given them so much over the years.
