TACOMA, Wash. – November 2, 2023 – Sprague Pest Solutions proudly announces its recognition as the Best Family-Owned Business in the “2023 Best in Business” awards by South Sound Business Magazine. The acknowledgment by the local community showcases Sprague’s legacy as a fourth-generation family-owned company deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest for 97 years.
The inaugural “Best in Business” awards invited readers across Washington’s Puget Sound region to vote across multiple categories, recognizing the finest businesses in the area. With hundreds of votes, this recognition, as the Best Family-Owned Business, is a testament to Sprague’s longstanding dedication to its customers, community, and the pursuit of excellence.
Originally established in Spokane, WA in 1926, Sprague was nurtured as a family business and subsequently moved to Tacoma in the early 1930s. It was in Tacoma that A.H. Treleven, Sr, the first generation of Treleven’s, operated the business from the family’s garage on North G Street, setting the foundation for the company’s enduring legacy. Today, Sprague operates in 10 states with 19 branches, and their Home Office continues to reside in Tacoma.
Ross Treleven, President of Sprague, and a fourth-generation family member, expressed his gratitude, saying, “With our 100-year anniversary approaching, being recognized is a tremendous honor for us. It reaffirms the values instilled by every Treleven generation.”
Sprague’s dedication to science-based pest management and service has been a hallmark of its presence for nearly a century.
