BEST OF HALL 2018 | The Times | 3
There may not be any exploding bombs of blue paint nor pink clouds of chalk falling from the sky, but the Best of Hall 2018 magazine is without doubt the year’s biggest reveal party. Our third year of asking area residents to identify the businesses and individuals they consider to be the Best of Hall generated more excitement than ever, with winners named in 282 different categories. Each year the nomination and selection process picks up more momentum and generates more excitement, as area residents take to their keyboards to recognize local entities for exemplary levels of service and commitment to customer satisfaction. For this year’s competition, the 4,500 of you who participated in the nomination process gave us 1,700 names for inclusion on the digital ballot. Those names then garnered more than 50,000 votes in the process to select winners in each category. Some of those chosen as Best of Hall are familiar names that have been winners in the past, while others are being recognized with the honor for the first time. Winners in the annual competition will soon be displaying window clings and plaques acknowledging their first place finishes. We hope you will look for those and congratulate the winners as you patronize their businesses. If you don’t’ see your favorite local company in the winner’s list this year, make sure you nominate them next time and then vote to help them win the recognition they deserve. Our annual Best Of awards are meant to be a fun, light-hearted way to celebrate excellence while encouraging input and participation from the entire community in doing so. We hope you enjoy the process as much as we do, and can appreciate all the things our winners routinely do to make our community better. We hope you will show your appreciation for the superior job done by each of these winners by doing business with them in the year to come. Please join us in congratulating all of them for excellence in their chosen field. Norman Baggs, General Manager

Atlanta Highway Seafood Best Seafood
THE TIM ES
The majority of the seafood is domestic and wild caught with special items available upon request. Fresh fish is available for purchase in the market. It can either be brought home as-is or prepared in the restaurant to be eaten there or taken home. Atlanta Highway Seafood Market is proud to support fishermen in the Gulf and keep our sources in house! We would like to thank our wonderful customers (many of which visit us at least once a week) and our staff for helping us win Best of Hall two years in a row! We invite you to dine in, take out, and shop our unique Seafood Market!
Atlanta Highway Seafood Market has been known to draw quite a crowd with its Cajun- and Asian-inspired dishes. Owner Phuong Le was raised in Biloxi, Mississippi and has always enjoyed fresh seafood and great cajun/creole cooking. With the desire to bring that taste and fresh seafood from the Gulf to the people of North Georgia, he opened Atlanta Highway Seafood Market in 2008. The business started as a fish market and grew into a restaurant to serve walk-ins as well as diners. Fresh seafood is brought in at least 4 times a week, to always ensure freshness.
Voted Best Seafood in Hall County!

Jay Hollander started as a laborer in the home building business in 1984 while attending college here in Hall County. By 1986, he was running his own framing crew with plans to start building new homes. “Builders in the area all basically know each other, so being selected best of the best is something we are very proud of. We know our competitors, they are great builders as well as people, so it’s quite an honor.” Media has made our industry look fast and simple with DYI and Pinterest. We live in a “hurry up” world so communication and involvement is key. Building a new home can be very stressful for both parties involved and won’t be problem free, but how you handle them when they arise can make the process good or bad.
