Assemblymember Brian Maienschein, San Diego, today honored ZCode Magazines as the 77th Assembly District’s 2014 Small Business of the Year in recognition of their ongoing commitment to the readers of our community.
“ZCode Magazines has found an innovative way to bring people in our community together by showcasing local businesses, events, and residents,” Maienschein said. “I’m proud to recognize ZCode for creating a fun, community-based publication that San Diegans enjoy reading, while helping local small businesses promote themselves.”
Launched in 2009, ZCode was originally called 92127, a reference to the zip code where the magazine was originally distributed. Since then it has grown to become ZCode Magazines, the publisher of eleven zip code-specific magazines reaching 185,000 San Diegans. Each magazine highlights unique local businesses, families, students, sports, and community events. ZCode also provides advice to local businesses on community outreach using social media, email, and custom publishing.
“On behalf of all of us at ZCode Magazines, we are honored to be selected by Assemblymember Maienschein to receive the Small Business of the Year Award,” said Derrick Breaux, President and CEO of ZCode Magazines. “We work hard to serve our readers and the community that we love, and we wouldn’t be successful without them.”
Each year, the California Small Business Association asks legislators to nominate a Small Business of the Year from their district that has demonstrated exemplary business ethics and community service. Honorees are presented with a framed certificate from the State Assembly recognizing their outstanding contributions.
