A downtown Binghamton business owner is getting national recognition for the progress of his young company.

Ben Giordano, owner of FreshySites located at 37 Court Street, has been named a Top Young Entrepreneur by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

FreshySites designs websites and offers web-based services for small and medium sized businesses along with not for profits.

Giordano started the concept in 2008 from his home and the company eventually evolved into FreshySites in 2011.

He says his tight-knit relationship with his customers is what makes the business successful.

“Our advantage and the reason why we’re successful is that we really take good care of our clients. We’re not looking to have short-term relationships where we can just move on. We want to build long lasting relationships with our clients and make them happy enough to tell their friends about us. That’s really been our secret to success,” he said.

FreshySites serves over 650 customers and has offices in Syracuse, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
