WATSONVILLE Receiving the business of the year award Saturday, John Martinelli of S. Martinelli & Company said the honor reflected another accomplishment.

"I think we're the comeback company of the year," he said.

Citing the recession and slow apple seasons, Martinelli told the crowd of about 400 at the Pajaro Valley Chamber of Commerce's 51st annual awards dinner that the business knew it would have to reinvent itself.

With a line of new products, it certainly worked, he said.

"We've caught up to where we were before the recession," Martinelli said. "We're charging ahead."

The Mardi Gras-themed event, taking place in the J.J. Crosetti Building at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, also honored the man, woman and organization of the year, as well as the lifetime achievement award.
