Industrial Staffing of Tennessee Honored at Annual DBE Breakfast

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Music City Center announced the Industrial Staffing of
Tennessee as the 2022 Vendor of Excellence at the annual MCC
Purchasing/Diversity Business Enterprise Appreciation Breakfast held
Wednesday, December 7.

MCC supports small, minority-owned, women-owned, and service-disabled
veteran-owned businesses through its DBE program. The annual
appreciation breakfast is an opportunity to reflect on the previous year
and preview the upcoming year, while thanking the facility’s
contracted DBE vendors and suppliers for their trusted partnerships.

“Our small and diverse business partners are a critical part of our
success,” said MCC President & CEO Charles Starks. “Many of these
businesses have been with us for years. We look forward to continuing
those partnerships and forging new relationships in the new year.”

The Vendor of Excellence designation is awarded to a business partner
who displays outstanding achievements in service and commitment to MCC
and supports the DBE cause. Industrial Staffing of Tennessee is a local,
woman-owned staffing company, offering flexible workforce solutions for
warehouse, events, housekeeping, machine operation, sanitation, and
other general labor positions. General Manager Jacci Hardway accepted
the award on Wednesday.

“Industrial Staffing is honored to be acknowledged by Music City
Center,” Hardway said. “I am so thankful for the work ethics of my
core team and support staff. Without their dedication, hard work, and
perseverance, success would not have been achievable!”

Starks added, “Industrial Staffing has been a valued partner of the
convention center since 2004. We’re extremely pleased with the level
of service they continue to provide to our facility.”

In the fiscal year 2022, a total of 18 small, minority-owned, women-owned,
and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses participated in the DBE
program, which accounted for nearly 30% of all MCC contracted business
for the year.
