best of southlake badge 2018

In our very first BEST OF SOUTHLAKE reader survey, we weren’t sure what to expect in terms of participation and interest. However, we were pleased to learn that many of you have strong opinions and want to share your insider perspective with others. The BEST OF SOUTHLAKE survey had more than 2,000 completed ballots, and local businesses received approximately 11,830 votes in one or more categories. A statistically valid survey at the county-wide level is approximately 500 responses, so to have such a high number of completed ballots from a smaller geographic area like Southlake ensures the accuracy of these picks. To prevent ballot stuffing, readers were only allowed to submit one ballot per email address. In addition, to encourage a broad base of votes in each category, participants who cast votes in 20 or more categories were eligible for a $500 grand prize. To be among the list of winners you had to meet certain criteria. First, you had to have a location in Southlake or, in the event of a service-based business, Southlake had to be part of your service area. You also had to be a top vote-getter in your category. In many categories we are recognizing two winners — both a Readers’ Choice and a Publisher’s Pick. Both winners were top vote-getters. While we congratulate these winners, we recognize that many successful and popular businesses did not make the list. Our area is fortunate to have a variety of choices from which to select and this list is provided as a service to readers who may be new to the area or are looking to branch out and try a new restaurant, a new service-related business, or other retailer. You’ll find the complete list of 115 winners in 64 categories on the following pages.
