Max Fuqua is UP’s Citizen of The Year

Family businessman Max Fuqua has been a strong advocate for UP’s commercial areas.

I can’t really say that I was shocked to find out that Max Fuqua, owner of Plaza Health Foods, chairman of the city’s Commercial-Retail Advisory Committee, and member of the University Park Merchants Association, was the sole finalist for University Park’s annual citizen of the year award. The only thing that surprised me, really, is that he was.

Instead of hoarding the glory for himself, Fuqua accepted the honor on behalf of “all commercial property owners and merchants who are working together to make our shopping areas even better.”

Congratulations, Max!

    I hope the rumor that Max bought the votes with free frozen yogurt are just a rumor…

    Just kidding, Max.

    As a UP Merchant, I have to say this couldn’t have gone to a more deserving guy.
