CCA – Recognizing Business Excellence
The symbol of the Consumer Choice Award is considered a seal of excellence and the coronation of local businesses’ efforts and achievements.

Consumer Choice Award marketing platform enhances the ability for small to medium size businesses to compete with larger corporations by providing unique marketing initiatives that differentiate them in the market place.

It represents the most valuable reward of all: the knowledge that a company has earned the trust and loyalty of consumers in their community.

Selection process
The research company conducts an open-ended survey among two major groups of consumers, the general public and the business community. Consumers are asked “…which business is your choice for excellence in each category? Please consider the elements of quality, service, value and appearance”.

A winner in each category is declared according to the survey’s results, which reflect THE CHOICE OF CONSUMERS. In each case, a Gold winner is declared, and where the results justify Silver and Bronze award winners are declared. On rare occurrences, there might be tied winners.
