Selection Criteria For Winners

BEST OF THE BEST LOCAL BUSINESS Awards are given out annually by the BEST OF THE BEST LOCAL BUSINESS Foundation in each community where there is a Sponsor. Selection of winners is based on a number of criteria:

  3. Winners must have a good reputation for being friendly to customers and providing consistent high quality products and services.
  4. Having reviews on Google and Yelp is a positive sign, with a good ratio of positive to negative reviews.
  5. Having a good looking website that functions well, with testimonials from happy customers is not an absolute necessity, but it is a definite advantage.
  6. Clients, suppliers, and business associates of the Sponsor are not eligible.
  7. Businesses with affiliations with national brands are not eligible.
  8. Information media are not eligible, such as community websites, newspapers, radio stations, and television stations.
