People's Choice

Congratulations to our winners he Fresno Bee has published the Annual People’s Choice awards for more than a decade. During that time, the businesses that make up the heart of our community have weathered financial hardships, recessions and a quickly changing retail landscape. We’ve seen some well-loved friends close up shop and we’ve seen new businesses rise up, grow and succeed. We’ve seen a lot. But we’ve never seen anything like this. Nobody saw this one coming. COVID-19 has thrown our entire world into chaos. We’ve seen our streets empty overnight. And we know what that has cost you, our community and our business friends. It would have been an easy thing to decide not to publish People’s Choice this year, given that many of the winners listed here are temporarily closed as we all shelter in place. We chose instead to celebrate the businesses listed here because they are our Valley favorites, places that have earned our trust and our loyalty. It is our responsibility to let them know that even though it is tough right now, we appreciate all they have done for our community in the past, and what they are doing now in the midst of this crisis. I hope that you read the listing of People’s Choice winners on the following pages. While some may be operating a little differently right now, they’re winners. Fresno Bee readers voted for their favorites in categories ranging from food and drink, to museums and dry cleaners. And more than ever, each and every business listed here has earned our support and our praise. Congratulations to our winners. And we will see you soon. — Carey Norton, Custom Publications Editor EEE

When you see the words “Love God, Love People, Love Coffee” splashed across the web site of the People’s Choice winner for Best Coffee House, you know there’s something more than coffee going on at this place. Owner Zack Follett says the No. 1 reason his coffee shops are different is love. “Love is the whole reason we do this,” Follett says. “God has love for all of His children and our mission is to love our community and to connect them to the love of Christ.” The common denominator between each of Kuppa Joy’s seven locations is what he calls the fourth-wave. “Let’s bring the best coffee and brew it and do it with a smile,” he says. “I want everyone who comes in to feel the love of Christ and to feel valued and appreciated.”
