Congratulations to all of the 2018 Best of Omaha winners. What an amazing list of businesses, organizations, events, and festivals.
The Best of Omaha guide connects new and prospective customers with Omaha’s best products, services and businesses. There’s a smart business philosophy, “The customer is always right.” That’s why the Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha is so trusted; the results come from the customers. We live in one of the best cities in the country because we offer a great quality of life and opportunities to succeed and reach goals. It’s what brings people to Omaha and it’s why they stay. Thank you to Omaha Magazine for recognizing the Best of Omaha. I wish you all continued success.
This year’s slate of honorees— making their marks across the quality of life spectrum—have worked hard to establish a connectedness with their customers and our community. More than accolades, that bond has earned them well-deserved reputations, the reward of repeat business, and elevated levels of success. Individually and together, this year’s winners make Greater Omaha a better place to be. Keep serving and keep striving—just be sure to take some time to enjoy the applause. Congratulations once again!
As Omaha’s official tourism authority responsible for promoting our city to potential visitors, Visit Omaha commends you for being the best. You have earned both the respect of your peers and the loyalty of your customers. Because you give Omaha your best work, visitors are provided with a vibrant, innovative and dynamic destination. It’s your products, services, and talents that provide us with a great city to promote. Without you, this city simply would not be the same. Thank you for welcoming visitors and making their experiences here truly special. Again, congratulations—we wish you all the best in 2018.
Though the awards are called the “Best of Omaha,” many of the winners could hold the title “Best of Sarpy,” as you’ll find restaurants, stores, entertainment venues, and activities from across Sarpy County listed among the winners—proof that our region’s success is tied to the connections we have across the metropolitan area. Thanks in part to those connections, our region continues to attract new residents, visitors, businesses, and jobs every year. In less than 30 minutes people can travel from the vibrant urban centers filled with nightlife and entertainment to the beautiful outdoor recreational areas and activities found in Sarpy County. In Sarpy County, we’re working to keep those connections strong and growing. Congratulations again to the winners.
