Here it is, the Chattanooga area's 4th annual Best of the Best. Inside you will find 163 winners for the most popular places to dine, shop or just hang out - our new Best of the Best awards section, as selected by you.
More than 20,000 ballots were cast by mail and online this year. The popularity and prestige of this annual event continues to grow so much we even had to move to the Chattanooga Convention Center to keep up with the increasing demand for tickets.
The Official People's Choice Awards of the Chattanooga Times Free Press feature everything from dining to snacks, repairs & services to health & beauty, locations to activities. We hope you find some of your favorites listed throughout these pages.
The annual Best of the Best People's Choice Awards contest gives readers of the Chattanooga Times Free Press an opportunity to let everyone know who their favorite businesses are. After the ballots were cast, results were tabulated both electronically and again through a third party, nonprofit agency. This section makes the first time the 2011 results have been made public.
Some of the businesses within are great new additions to our community, while others have served the area proudly for generations. Each business, whether new or old, is making strides to stand out and represent the best our region has to offer.
We hope you use this list of winners to try new experiences and to keep up with old favorites.
Thank you again to the tens of thousands of readers who voted to make this event an overwhelming success. As always, our readers continue to amaze us with their support and loyalty.
And to the winners, congratulations for being voted one of the Best of the Best in Chattanooga.
