Best of Colorado 2017 – 3rd annual business choice readers’ poll

Our third annual list of the best businesses in Colorado, from IT services to insurance brokerage firms


Published:

As the name of this special supplement suggests, this is where we turn the job of judging service excellence over to the readers and friends of ColoradoBiz magazine and cobizmag.com.

Now in its third year, the Business Choice readers' poll asks voters to weigh in on 74 categories, ranging from law firms to IT services to fitness clubs to the annual favorite: 

BEST PLACE TO PLAY HOOKY

Some categories are essential to business, others have more to do with rejuvenation for work that lies ahead.

Once again, we've teamed with Data Joe, a research firm that set up the online ballot system and tabulated the votes. As in past years, participants were required to vote in at least 10 categories for companies they would most trust to take care of their friends and co-workers. They were also required to vote for at least two companies other than their own in each chosen category.

Check out the pages that follow to see how closely voters' opinions reflect your own experiences – and perhaps learn about service providers to consider adding to your contact list.
