WE AT THE FREDERICK NEWS-POST recognize that small businesses and businesspeople are the heartbeat of Frederick. That’s why we hold this annual readers’ choice awards contest—to provide a platform to honor those the public chooses year over year. This is the fifth year of Best of the Best, and this is the fifth year many businesses have won or been a finalist in their category. You’ll find them all starting on page 24. Meanwhile, the votes in this year’s final round—all 345,000 of them—have been counted in 190-plus categories, and we’re proud to announce the winners and finalists here. And if down the road you find yourself looking for a good seafood restaurant, a good dentist, a fun place to take the kids, etc., you’ll find all this year’s winners and finalists at FrederickNewsPost.com/BoB.

This is not a scientific poll, but a readers’ choice contest. Winners and finalists were based on the number of votes submitted by the community. Most phone numbers and websites were sourced via Google. All ballots are confidential and the property of The Frederick News-Post. Want to learn more about how Best of the Best works? Visit FrederickNewsPost.com/goto/BoB.
