BEACON Best awards

Jan 25, 2022 10:54AM ● By Cloie Sandlin

BEACON readers spent the last few months nominating their favorite people, businesses and hot spots throughout Western Colorado. Now, we’re excited to reveal the BEACON Best—the people, shops and service providers that rise above the rest for Western Colorado boomers and seniors.

Many of our readers grew up in an age where good service was a staple of every purchase and every experience. While this year’s BEACON Best winners span many different industries, they all have this in common: Each winner is dedicated to delivering high-quality experiences and superior service that BEACON readers have come to respect. 

Our February issue is the perfect place to recognize the love our readers have for the outstanding people and businesses in our community. 

We’d like to thank all the readers who voted! We’d also like to thank the people—musicians, employees and business owners—who go the extra mile for Western Colorado seniors. It’s that kind of commitment that sets the BEACON Best apart.
