DEARBORN, Mich., – July 13, 2016 – Promoting a sense of pride and beautification in the Dearborn, Mich. community, Bazzi Oil & Gas Company, a CITGO Petroleum Corporation Marketer, recently received the Dearborn City Beautiful Commission’s Business Standard of Excellence Award for maintaining and enhancing the appearance of its CITGO station property.

Located at 7954 Greenfield Road in Dearborn, the CITGO station was one of 14 local businesses recognized out of more than 4,000 in the area for contributing to the civic responsibility and pride of the city through property attractiveness. This is the second time that Bazzi Oil & Gas received this award, having been first recognized for its beautification efforts back in 2010.  

“We are very thankful that our hard work and dedication to this station has been recognized yet again,” said Fadel Bazzi, Bazzi Oil & Gas Company. “We have been continuously improving the aesthetics and operations of this CITGO station so that its curb appeal reflects the pride that we have for our business and the surrounding community.” 

According to Dearborn city officials, attractive businesses add to the appeal of Dearborn and help to bring in more homeowners, visitors and customers.

“We look for community leaders, like Fadel Bazzi, who are clearly dedicated to enhancing Dearborn as a whole and set a great example for other businesses to join the cause and improve their local establishments,” said Erin K. Byrnes, City Beautiful Commission Chairman. 

In addition to honoring businesses, the Dearborn City Beautiful Commission also sponsors events in public and private schools in Dearborn, including annual cleanup parades and other environmental awareness programs.
