Recently local consumers participated in an on-line survey and nominated businesses and professionals they felt were worthy of the distinction, “Best in Business”. Once the results were compiled and tabulated, Best in Business Award Association began an extensive selection process.  Each nominee first had to demonstrate a satisfactory rating with the local Better Business Bureau, a prerequisite of the program. Next, the owner or officer of the nominated business was required to participate in an assessment interview with Best in Business Award.  Topics ranging from experience and hiring practices of their employees to liability insurance coverage and customer service procedures were discussed, just to name a few. The final step in the selection process was to gauge a nominee’s overall reputation in the community among their peers. For instance, insurance companies were asked which roofing contractors and collision repair shops are on their preferred list. Home inspectors were questioned about the craftsmanship quality of area homebuilders. General contractors were asked which subcontractors have a dependable track record, and state medical board inquiries were made regarding particular physicians, etc.

“Selecting an exceptional slate of recipients for our award was time consuming and required us to be thorough,” said John Gaylor of Best in Business Award. “And allowing local consumers totake part in the process also gave us a credible point of reference from which to begin our search.” Gaylor went on to say, “One of our Best in Business Award recipients has been named National Franchisee of the Year for an unprecedented fourth time with his company, and many of our recipients’ companies are family run and multi-generational. We’ve had one of our recipients who has served as the Alabama State Board President for his respective field of medicine, and a number of other recipients currently serve on various state boards. These are just a few examples of why consumers should feel confident when they call upon our recipients…they can do so with the assurance that these are businesses and professionals worthy of this notable distinction.”
