New West residents salute the city’s best

The 26th annual Readers’ Choice Awards shine a spotlight on the city’s top businesses and services, paying tribute to organizations that have gone out of their way to make their mark. Each year, the New West Record encourages readers to vote for the best enterprises, events, non-profits, people and places.

The contest is decided by thousands of votes in more than 100 categories, in which each ballot must contain a minimum of 15 businesses voted upon, with only one ballot accepted per person.

The results show the well-earned esteem earned by local companies, people, places and a ractions through top-tier products and customer service, and a strong commitment to stand out from the crowd.

We’re proud to play a part in acknowledging the outstanding achievers in our community, and hope you will keep the Readers’ Choice list and refer to it o en over the coming year. Not only does it make an excellent guide to what the city has to offer, but also helps local businesses stay strong and sustainable.

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards, and also to everyone who participated in the contest.
