Sandra Escalante’s rise as a prominent small business owner in Richmond doesn’t appear to have a peak.
This summer, her company, Laner Electric Supply Co. at 1310 51st St., was honored in Sacramento as the 2018 Small Business of the Year for Sen. Nancy Skinner’s district (D-9).
Escalante’s business was one of 75 businesses out of 3.3 million in the state honored at the 2018 California Small Business Day, an event done in partnership with 25 small business organization and chambers. The honor stems from a California Assembly resolution in 2000 honoring the state’s small businesses.
