ROCK ISLAND, IL – ComedySportz Quad Cities, operators of The Establishment, were honored as 2012 Small Business of the Year (21-50 employees) on May 16th, 2012 at the Morning Network meeting, held by the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce.  The criteria for the award were based on community involvement, innovation, and leadership through adversity and success.

ComedySportz Quad Cities opened at The Establishment in 2010 after renovating the formerly known Rocket Theatre in The District of Rock Island.  With the assistance of the Chamber of Commerce and DARI, ComedySportz QC Ltd. created a new home for family entertainment with room to grow their creative services.
