Fresh Brothers’ Adam Goldberg credited his “mentor” Michael Greenberg of Skechers, his “fixer” restaurateur Michael Zislis (who helped Fresh Brothers land an LAX location) and the broader Manhattan Beach community for the meteoric success of his family’s pizza company.

Goldberg’s thank-yous came during his acceptance of the “Best of Manhattan” award during the Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards dinner at the Manhattan Beach Marriott on Oct. 8.

Since opening their first store in 2008, Goldberg, his wife Debbie, and his brothers Adam and Michael have expanded to 14 stores, with plans to expand into neighboring states.

The Bob Meistrell Local Legend Award was presented to Judy and John Peetze for their work with this year’s Special Olympics. The two formed a committee that hosted Special Olympians from Hungary and Nepal.

Other 2014 Best Of Manhattan awardees were Leadership Manhattan Beach for Business Bringing MB Together; Wilshire Bank’s David Curry for Home Sweet Home, which recognizes leaders in real estate, mortgages and wealth management; the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation for Enhancing MB; Two Guns Espresso for Small and Mighty; Manhattan Beach Post for Branding MB; The Strand House for Dine MB; and the Manhattan Village Mall for Pay It Forward.
