The Wacoan is proud to announce the winners of our 11th annual Best of Waco contest. After two months of online polling, votes were hand-tabulated in 209 categories. Voters were required to answer at least half of the questions for their votes to be counted, and special care was taken to guard against duplicate voting.

Eleven-time winners were crowned in seven categories: Car Wash, Chicken-Fried Steak, Dry Cleaner, Furniture Store, Mother’s Day Out Program, Orthodontist and Realtor. For the sixth time, we’ve noted the highest-ranking local winner in categories where a franchise landed the top spot. From successful family businesses to popular chains, Waco is a fascinating mix. Join us in congratulating these establishments and professionals for their achievements.
