We are proud to celebrate these local businesses and recognize them as the Best of Brattleboro for 2022! With over 13 years of running Windham County’s community voting for the area’s best in class, it’s amazing to see the number of readers who cast their votes on their favorite businesses. Some businesses are first time winners to their category while others have won for over a decade. Each local business is truly a pillar to the community and makes our region a better place to call home. These businesses not only provide top-level services but provide employment and tax dollars to our towns. They are vital in many ways and work incredibly hard to keep up the good work. It’s our duty to celebrate and support them. Thank you to all the local area businesses and thank you to all the readers who took the time to vote for them. — Jordan Brechenser, President and Publisher Vermont News and Media
