Less than two weeks remain to vote in Times’ first Reader’s Choice poll

With the contest ending April 26, you have a little less than two more weeks to get your votes in for the first Franklin County Times’ Best of the Best Reader’s Choice Poll.

The things is, everyone has their favorite local people, places and products – the best florist, the best burger, the best car repair, the best cup of coffee, the best hair stylist. Everyone can name their top choice for everything from car insurance to home decor to catfish to lawn care.

Through this contest, you can help your Franklin favorites get the recognition they deserve. We want to shine a spotlight on the businesses that go above and beyond in whatever they do. We want our local businesses to get the word out about what makes them “the best of the best,” whether it’s a superb slice of pizza, unparalleled customer service or an unending dedication to patient or client care.

We want to celebrate it all – but we can’t do it without you.

So let your voice be heard in this inaugural contest to highlight the very best Franklin County has to offer.

And bonus – maybe win a cool cash prize for yourself!
