And Our 2023 Winners Are…

And Our 2023 Winners Are…

Did you notice that we announced our 2023 Best of SLC Business Award winners last week?

Congrats to all the Top 3 finalists and winners of this year’s awards. It’s quite the accomplishment and you should be proud of yourselves!

Awards Ceremonies

Held at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, this year’s ceremony was celebrated over two evenings this week. We were fortunate enough to celebrate with a SOLD OUT audience of over 700 people representing dozens of candidates.

Moody McCarthy entertained us with a riveting comedy show, we had over $6,000 in door prizes that we gave away, and the cash bar and catered dessert was amazing.

Oh yeah, and then there’s the awards! We announced the results of the categories that were represented in person at the ceremonies. Attendance wasn’t required to win, but it sure was required if you wanted to have a good time.

If you attended the ceremony, be sure to check out our photos from the event. And if you didn’t make it, hopefully we’ll see you there next year!

Be sure to download the free marketing graphics we have prepared for all of our finalists. These images can be accessed through our online dashboard.

Thank You!

It’s been such a wonderful year and we’ve really enjoyed putting on this year’s Business Awards.

From our entire team at Inbound Systems that run and operate Best of SLC, we want to thank you, the candidates and residents of the Salt Lake Valley. Your participation is paramount to anything we do for the program.

Also, a shout out to our 2023 sponsors. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to put on these awards. It takes a lot of time and effort to manage the nominations, votes, reviews, awards ceremony, magazine, plaques, etc. So, thank you again to our sponsors.

Voting for our 2023 Business Awards is NOW OPEN!

Hello Salt Lake City! We’re back for another year of recognizing the best businesses and places in the Salt Lake Valley!

Who Selected Our Nominees?

Ultimately our nominees were selected by Salt Lake area residents. The determining factors were the nominations received in February and the candidates’ Google reviews throughout the previous year.

We were overwhelmed with the number of nominations we received this year, over 1,200 MORE nominations than we received in 2022!

Now, SLC residents can show their support again by voting for their favorite candidates online. Voting is open from March 27 – April 12, 2023.

Hump Day Giveaway!

Back by popular demand is our Hump Day Giveaway where we hold a weekly voting contest and announce a new winner each Wednesday. For every new voter you refer after registering your own ballot, you’ll be entered into a weekly drawing for a nice prize.

The first prize up for grabs is from Fuzzy Love Photography. They’re giving away a custom pet photo session with up to 4 dogs and their humans ($499) and an 11×14 canvas wall art ($525). We’ll have new prize every week, so keep the referrals coming!

And the Winner Is…

After voting closes on April 12, we’ll announce the finalists as soon as we have confirmed the results and checked each candidates BBB grade. (No grade is okay, but a bad one is not!) But that’s not where it ends.

In addition to votes, the winner of each category is also determined by their Google reviews from the previous 12 months. Combining the vote total with the review score will give us our winners. We’ll first announce the winners at the Best of SLC Awards Ceremony in Salt Lake City, currently scheduled for the evenings of May 9 + 10, 2023. Then, we’ll publish the results online and in our Best of SLC 2023 Magazine.

For more details, the latest information can be found on our How It Works and FAQ pages.

Thanks for your support and participation!


Our 2023 award season has started off with a bang! Salt Lake City residents were able to nominate their favorite companies from February 1 – February 10 and we cannot believe the support we received. Our nomination period saw a 48% increase in submissions with a total of 2376 candidates in 262 categories! 🤯 It’s obvious that Best of SLC is continuing to grow, and we have been working hard to build a brand new website. Additionally, we’ve been understaffed. Our team has put in extra hours, but it has taken us longer than anticipated to verify these companies. Our official 2023 nominees were released this morning.

We want to give everyone the best shot at winning, so we have decided to adjust the dates for our voting period. Our 2023 voting period will now be from March 27 – April 12. All other dates will remain the same, with our awards ceremony happening in Salt Lake on both May 9 + 10 (more details coming soon!).
