PLYMOUTH — The Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center was recently granted certification by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification validates that the business is 51-percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women, giving women-owned businesses the ability to compete for real-time business opportunities.
Fox Hills is owned and operated by sisters Kathy Aznavorian and Sandy Mily, whose parents founded Fox Hills as a private country club in 1927. Under their ownership, Kathy and Sandy added the 18-hole championship course Golden Fox and the championship par-three course Strategic Fox, becoming the largest single golf facility in southeastern Michigan with 63 holes of golf. The sisters also introduced the Golden Fox Clubhouse and the Summerhouse on the Lakes venues for weddings and events.
“We are extremely proud that Fox Hills was granted certification by WBENC,” said Julia Grelak, director of sales and marketing. “WBENC is a great organization that gives women-owned businesses opportunities to facilitate business and growth, which is very important to everyone at Fox Hills. Kathy and Sandy have done an amazing job expanding Fox Hills and we couldn’t be more excited for the future opportunities the WBENC certification will provide us.”
WBENC is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. The council provides certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country and is the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America’s corporations.
WBENC’s certification is accepted by more than 1,000 corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands. To achieve WBENC Certification, women-owned businesses complete a formal documentation and site visit process.
