QUINCY — Three Quincy-area businesses — Legacy Martial Arts, Smith Brothers PowerSports and Twaddle Plumbing — recently were named recipients of a Better Business Bureau TORCH Award winner for BBB Serving Eastern & Southwest Missouri & Southern Illinois.

TORCH Awards honor businesses and charities exemplifying high ethics in their treatment of customers, employees and suppliers.

“BBB TORCH Awards recognize companies committed to exceptional standards and high ethics,” BBB Quincy regional director Don O’Brien said in a press release. “These organizations have truly joined BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust in an exemplary way, and they are role models for other businesses in the community.”

In business since 2011, Legacy Martial Arts offers martial arts training to children and adults from two dojo locations in Quincy and Hannibal, Missouri. The company also touts its self-defense training.

“We take pride in creating an environment for individuals to achieve, develop and succeed in their personal goals,” said Robert Bentley, owner and chief instructor.  

Smith Brothers Powersports is a family-owned motorcycle dealership that has operated in Quincy for more than 30 years. 

“Even when it is challenging, we strive to do what is right first,” general manager Andrew Smith said.  

Twaddle Plumbing is a residential and commercial plumbing contractor based in Payson. 

“We pride ourselves on being a hometown business that people in the region can trust,” owner Clint Twaddle said.

The TORCH Award winners were recognized during ceremonies at their offices coordinated by BBB and WGEM-TV, which is airing the awards presentations through public service announcements shown on its various networks.

BBB is a nonprofit, business-supported organization that sets and upholds high standards for fair and honest business behavior. BBB services to consumers are free.
