Best year yet for Readers’ Choice winners F

rom the best accountant to the best wrecker service, the Rocky Mount Telegram presents its annual Readers’ Choice Awards in celebration of the people, places and things that make our area great. Response to this “Best of the Best” contest continues to grow every year. Clearly, our readers are passionate about their favorites. In fact, nearly three times as many readers voted this year than just two years ago, and we had nearly 45,000 votes to

tally this year. Special thanks goes to Jeanne Brown, Ashley Cox and Thomas Zawistowicz who tabulated all the online and print edition votes. We are always tinkering with the categories to keep this contest up-to-date and relavant. If there are categories you think we should add or subtract, contact special sections coordinator Jeanne Brown at 252-4079927 or When you’re out and

about, be sure to look for the colorful Telegram 2013 Readers’ Choice window cling (like on the cover of this magazine.) Support the businesses you and your friends, neighbors and coworkers voted as the best of the best. If there are some winners you’re not familiar with, you might want to visit and see what makes them a top choice. We thank our readers for their feedback and participation and congratulate the five voters who were ran-

domly selected to receive $20 gift cards to the winning businesses of their choice. Those winners include: Brenda Warbritton of Rocky Mount, Alicia Richardson of Tarboro, Jenice Meadows of Nashville, Sabrina Nicanders of Whitakers and Rick Sanford of Rocky Mount. We applaud the people and businesses highlighted within this magazine who make the Twin Counties such a special place to live.
