Greg and Katy Law, owners of Sweet Dream Mattress and Furniture were named the Robert T. Cashion Businesspersons of the Year at the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce annual meeting on Jan. 17th.
Robert Cashion’s widow, Louise Cashion, and son Gordon Cashion, assisted 2019 Chamber Board Chair Tricia Sisson, who presented the Laws with the award at the Peninsula Club. In a touch of irony, Greg Law told attendees to the sold out event that he recalled making a delivery of a Sweet Dreams Mattress to Louise Cashion just a few years ago. The company has seen tremendous sales and employment growth in fiscal year 2019.
Sweet Dreams has locations in Cornelius, Denver and Mooresville. In accepting the award, Greg Law cited the vision for the company which is “To help as many people as possible achieve their dreams.” Both he and his wife Katy are active in the community serving their church and involved in a number of charities including a “No Child Hungry Packing Event” which prepared 10,000 meals to families in need.
Greg and Katy thanked the team at Sweet Dreams and the community for their support, “"We have tremendous respect for the Cashion Family, the previous recipients, and the Chamber leaders that chose us for the Robert T. Cashion 2019 Business Persons of the Year Award. We love Lake Norman and love serving the people of this community. We feel an added responsibility to do more to give back and live our vision to "Help as many people as possible achieve their dreams!" Whether that be through the way we treat and help every employee and customer that enters our stores, or through being an active participant and leader in worthy causes in our community. We will give back, and we will continue to help others."
Greg Law added, "It's all about relationships. The Chamber does a wonderful job of bringing people together so that these relationships can be forged and local business people have more opportunities to support each other. Sweet Dreams has been an active participant in a wide array of events, socials, and programs that the Chamber has organized. Each of these have been an opportunity to meet new friends, learn valuable information, and also promote our business to the public. We have learned that we get more out of the entire experience by the degree in which we put others' interests before our own. How can we learn more or support another business person? Or how can we host a fun and interactive Business After Hours party for all to enjoy? We feel rewarded ourselves when we can add value to others."
