Got a favorite local business or restaurant you want to show support for?

Through May 31, the Citrus Heights community can cast votes online for local businesses they feel are worthy to win the “Best of Citrus Heights” annual award from the local Chamber of Commerce.

To vote in the competition, participants are invited to visit and select their choice for best business in up to 39 different categories this year. Choices range from just three businesses listed in smaller categories, like media publications and local veterinarians, to more than 10 business choices in categories like insurance services and accounting. Other categories include restaurants, automotive services, and car washes.

A quick browse through businesses listed in each category shows not all local businesses are listed, as the annual competition is restricted to businesses who are members of the Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce.

Categories like restaurants give voters a choice of just eight local restaurants: Asian N Cajun 2, Black Bear Diner, El Tapatio Restaurant, India Oven Restaurant & White Lotus Banquet Hall, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Red Lobster, Sammy’s Restaurant and Bar, and Texas Roadhouse Restaurant. Another eight restaurants are also located in a separate “Quick Service Restaurants” category.

Last year, nearly 10,000 votes were cast to determine winners in each category. Winning businesses this year will be honored during an awards luncheon on July 11 at the Citrus Heights Community Center, and a “Best of the Best Award” will also be awarded to the business who gains the most overall votes.
