Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Family Business holds its fifth annual Hall of Fame event March 19, where it will honor exemplary family businesses in Southern California with induction into the Family Business Hall of Fame. 

Companies are nominated by their peers and selected by previous inductees. Honorees are chosen based on excellence in the community, strength in succession, maintaining and honoring the founder’s vision, and commitment to education.
