YOUR BEST OF OMAHA TEAM

UNO Associate Athletic Director Baxter Arena General Manager
My mom owned a restaurant when I was growing up. With five kids, we had our own army to feed and she worked hard to make ends meet. I saw firsthand the struggles small business owners go through. How important a “good Saturday” was, not only to the bottom line but also the people working to build a successful business. At KETV we take this to heart, giving our local businesses the best tools to help them thrive. We’re proud to partner with The Best of Omaha as it honors the drive, passion, and personal sweat the Omaha business owners put forth every day. Congratulations to the winners and everyone that was nominated.
Congratulations to all of the great Omaha businesses that are being recognized for their excellence by Omaha Magazine. Receiving the recognition as a “2018 Best of Omaha” carries the distinction of being singled out by the citizens of our community as the outstanding business in your particular sector. That is a tremendous honor for any business to receive.
We are excited to introduce the Best of Omaha winners. This entire publication is devoted to celebrating the businesses, institutions, and organizations that make the community an award-winning city. We are proud to be associated with every entity that received votes in Omaha’s original “best of” contest. Within these pages are the results of the votes for the best in the community—the best restaurants, services, shops, watering holes, golf holes, and more. Omaha has often been voted one of the top family-friendly towns in America, and I like to think of Omaha Magazine as one big family. As voters and readers of Best of Omaha, we are proud to welcome you to that family.
Baxter Arena is honored once again to host the 2018 Best of Omaha Festival. As a long-time fixture in Omaha, the University of Nebraska-Omaha appreciates the effort that Omaha Magazine makes to recognize so many deserving local businesses. This acknowledgement helps citizens from across the area identify companies that exude excellence. Baxter Arena strives for excellence in everything we do. With an incredible variety of recreation and entertainment options, we bring the community the finest in Division I athletics, concerts, trade shows, graduations, lecture series, and unique content such as the 2018 U.S. Olympic Curling Trials. We hope you enjoy your day at the Best of Omaha Festival, and we hope to see you at many Baxter Arena events in the future.
