Envelope, please. After three weeks of voting, the results of this year’s Frankfort’s Faves People’s Choice Awards have been tabulated and the top three winners on each ballot are announced in a special section in Thursday’s edition.
One of the most fun sections we print each year, Frankfort’s Faves gives folks the opportunity to vote for their favorite local businesses, individuals and service providers in 138 categories — divided into three sections: At Your Service, Frankfort’s Finest and Hometown.
This year, a total of 5,075 ballots were cast. At Your Service, which includes 49 categories for service providers, garnered the most votes with 2,392. Voters decided the winners in a variety of sectors — from favorite dental clinic to favorite landscape and lawn care service company to favorite veterinary clinic. Which gym and fitness studio was the top vote-getter? Who is Frankfort’s favorite mortgage lender?
Also split into 49 categories, Frankfort’s Finest, which spotlights the area’s favorite professionals and individuals, tallied 1,573 votes. Folks decided their favorite barber, car salesman, high school athlete, local character and law enforcement official. Who is the top local choice for massage therapist? Which pediatrician do your neighbors recommend? And who ranked as the city’s favorite musician?
Hometown Hotspots, which highlights 40 places and events that call Frankfort home, totaled 1,110 votes. From Asian restaurants to cocktails and grocery stores, ballot casters selected winners in a wide variety of categories. What restaurant can boast the city’s favorite burger? Who makes the best Kentucky Hot Brown? Looking for the favored place to watch the big game or hear live music?
