With Veterans Day falling in November, the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Team wanted to honor a local business run by a veteran as the Business of the Month.

Quali-Tee Design fit the bill with not one veteran, but two who work together to run the company. The father-son duo of Jim and Todd Evans started Quali-Tee Design in 1993 in a barn, and the company has now grown to 18 employees at its location at the Evans Center, 1270 US Highway 22 NW. There, the company makes customized apparel, trophies, signage and more.

Jim Evans has over 20 years of service with the U.S. Navy and his son Todd served 15 years in the army and another four in the Air Force.

“First and foremost, we thank both Jim and Todd – and all veterans – who served our country. We also thank them for their contributions to this community through their business. They’re providing jobs for 18 people, contributing to our local economy, and I know Quali-Tee often contributes to various causes and charitable organizations throughout the year,” said Chamber president Whitney Gentry.
