The winners were chosen from a pool of applicants from around the nation based on their company’s business performance, innovation, growth and service to the community, according to the NAWBO Web site.

The Wayzata-based company sells upscale furniture, clothing and accessories and a portion of the store's earnings funds breast cancer programs. Hensley started the company after losing her sisters to the disease.
