The contest was sponsored by leading national point-of-sale (POS) system and merchant services provider Harbortouch.

Melba Wilson, owner of Melba’s Restaurant, stated: “I would like to thank Harbortouch for giving me this amazing opportunity. The cash prize will allow me to make considerable improvements to my business and the POS system will enable me to improve my operations. Overall, this is going to make a huge difference for my restaurant!”

“We received many impressive video submissions so it was very difficult to choose just one winner. We felt that Melba’s video was the most professional, creative and did the best job of explaining how a Harbortouch POS system would benefit her business,” said Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman. “Since we were so impressed with the submissions, we also decided to award two runner-up prizes of $500 each to County Animal Clinic in Coldwater, OH and The Hangar Grill in Wise, VA. We would like to congratulate the winners and thank everyone for their participation. At Harbortouch, we serve small and mid-sized businesses all over the country. We know how hard it is to succeed in this economy and we hope that this contest will help make a difference for the winning businesses.”
