Earlier this year, 222,782 votes were cast to determine the winners in 94 categories within six topics: food and drink, home, entertainment, retail, services; and health, wellness and beauty. In addition to winners, the list also included runners-up and businesses voters also loved.
The Best of the City list is published in the October issue of all three of TAMPA Magazines’ publications —TAMPA Magazine, South Tampa Magazine and Tampa Bay Live Work Play — for a total of 65,000 copies distributed in Tampa and St. Petersburg, as well as online at tampamagazines.com.
With TAMPA Magazines’ recent expansion into the St. Petersburg area, this year’s list also includes businesses from St. Pete.
“We are excited to recognize so many outstanding businesses on both sides of the Bay in this year’s Best of the City,” says Shawna Wiggs, group publisher of TAMPA Magazines. “We encourage our readers to save this list to reference throughout the year and show their support.”
