Best of Harnett announces 2018 winners
Welcome to the Best of Harnett County. A celebration of all that makes Harnett County the best! We are excited to present this comprehensive look at the 331 businesses and individuals that our readers voted as the best for the services they provide to our local residents and visitors.
This year we had over 1,690 nominations in 133 categories. There were 663 businesses competing to be recognized as the top three in the category they were nominated. We had over 50,480 votes cast this year!
You most likely noticed that we had a new format and a new name for 2018. The new Best of Harnett County expanded to include businesses that serve the more than 130,800 people that make Harnett County home.
This year we had a nomination phase and then a voting phase. Everything was completed online. We organized into eight specific categories: eat & drink, health & beauty, home & garden, professional services, local, schools, shopping and things to do.
In addition to our all-new Best of Harnett Magazine, we also deployed our all new digital destination www.bestofharnett.com. Year-round you can find more about this year’s winners, past winners and other interesting special focus sections like Bridal and Health Care.
I encourage you to spend some time and read about each and every one of the winners that are represented here. I also encourage you to engage with the community. Shopping, dining out and living local has never been more important to the financial health of our part of North Carolina. I also encourage you to engage with us online at www.mydailyrecord.com and through a subscription to The Daily Record.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to those who voted.
