For twenty years, the Readers Choice Awards has given communities across Eastern Massachusetts the opportunity to vote for their favorite local business. After six months, we are so proud that we are able to announce who the winners of the 2015 awards are. We’re also happy to introduce all of you to our new website, wickedlocalfavorites.com.

Wickedlocalfavorites.com isn’t just a website to visit and see your business listed one time, it’s a resource that every consumer can use throughout the year. You can check it when you’re in a new town and looking to try a restaurant. It’s there if you have a flat tire and looking for the most reliable auto-body shop. Maybe you and the family decide to take a Sunday drive and want to plan your journey. We’ve designed wickedlocalfavorites.com to be your community business resource.
