2019 Best Of Dubois County winners announced


Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When we began planning The Herald’s first-ever readers’ choice awards, we knew it had the potential to be big. After all, Dubois County is home to countless wonderful businesses that pride themselves on being the best they can be. Add to the mix the people that live here and their passion for their hometown favorites and we knew we had a recipe for success. We just never imagined how successful the contest would ultimately be.

The Best Of Dubois County contest aimed to honor the best the county has to offer in 98 categories that ranged from food to shopping to health to automotive and everything in between. First, we asked you to nominate your favorites in each category. You responded in huge numbers. When the nomination period ended, nearly 67,000 nominations had been placed.

Next, we moved the five businesses with the most nominations in each category onto the voting phase of the contest. Again, you responded in droves. When it was all said and done, more than 250,000 votes were cast to determine the Best in each category! And that is what we are proudly presenting in this magazine — our first here at The Herald. 

The magazine will be delivered to all Herald subscribers and copies will be given to first place winners along with a window decal of the logo so they can let their customers know that they were voted the Best. The magazine will also be made available to visitors from outside our area as they explore Dubois County and the best it has to offer.

Let me offer a final “thank you” to everyone who took the time to participate in our first-ever readers’ choice contest. We look forward to making it an annual tradition. And congratulations to all the businesses that work hard every day to help make Dubois County a great place to live, work and play.
