Times & EDC partner for Readers' Choice Awards


Amy Pruett was winner #1 of the Readers' Choice Awards drawing.

Treasa Cline was winner #2 of the Readers' Choice Awards drawing.

Bobby Isenhour was named as final of the three Readers' Choice Awards drawing winners from among survey participants.

– Which restaurant has the best cheeseburger in Alexander County? Or who’s the best barber, electrician, or mechanic? What’s your favorite school, church, or civic club? Local residents were asked to cast their vote in the 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards. 

This local awards program is being sponsored by the Alexander County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and The Taylorsville Times with the objective of promoting local businesses in Alexander County and supporting the EDC’s “Buy Local” campaign.

The awards survey contains approximately 90 blanks in which residents can vote for their favorite businesses. Categories include: Dining Out; Having Fun; Professional Services; Community Favorite; Shopping; Health & Wellness; Financial; Automotive; and Out-of-County Favorites.

“This awards program is the perfect opportunity to vote for your favorite businesses, and help promote them to others,” said Gary Herman, Small Business Development Coordinator for the EDC. “This goes hand-in-hand with the EDC’s ‘Buy Local’ campaign as we strive to make our residents more aware of the importance of supporting our local merchants.”

The survey ran for six weeks until the deadline of October 10.

To help encourage participation in the Reader’s Choice Awards, random survey respondents were chosen after the second, fourth, and sixth week and won $50 each. 

Soon, survey results will be compiled and the winning businesses will be presented with a framed certificate. The results will be available in a special tabloid in The Taylorsville Times, as well as on the EDC’s website at www.AlexanderEDC.org.
