asked its readers to vote for their favorite local business. We received almost 7,000 votes this year in 56 categories. The votes were counted to compile a list of stand-out businesses and service providers. The top vote-getters represent businesses that service McKinney, from small family-owned businesses to large companies that provide a variety of valuable products and services.

This year's winners were revealed on Thursday, Oct. 22 in conjunction with the McKinney Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Membership Luncheon held at Eldorado Country Club. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Allen sponsored the luncheon featuring a panel of CEOs – Greg Massey of First United Bank, Ben Pogue of Pogue Construction and Lance Spivey of Stratifi Health – who discussed ways they have built their businesses by keeping their values at the forefront of their decision-making process. Cary Broussard, Managing Partner with Broussard Global – and Founder and Chair of Conscious Capitalism, Dallas Chapter – moderated the event.
