thebestof Guernsey names its winners

La Reunion has been named the winner of the Business of the Year award for 2019 through the annual marketing campaign run by thebestof Guernsey.

The local branch announced its winners at a regional ceremony recently.

In second place, with 269 reviews, was Specsavers Opticians Market Square and in third position with 245 reviews was Sarnia Mutual. 

The Business of the Year Awards is organised by thebestof, a marketing organisation committed to raising the profile of local, independent businesses serving Guernsey and the UK.

Best of Awards

During the campaign, local people were encouraged to show their support for their favourite business by submitting a review of the service they had received by the business. The Awards operate at a National Level to recognise the overall UK Business of the Year and the Top 100 Businesses in the UK. And at a Local level to recognise and award the Business of the Year in their Business Category and Town Business of the Year.

Rick de Garis of thebestof Guernsey said; “We congratulate all our local businesses who qualified for the Guernsey Business of the Year Awards.  Local people have taken the time to give feedback on the business after using their services and we have seen some fantastic reviews displaying the great service you can receive from local independent businesses across our high streets. On behalf of the businesses, I would like to thank every single person who took the time to leave a review. By doing so they publicly acknowledged the contribution that these businesses make to our local economy.

“La Reunion is a very worthy winner. The number and quality of the reviews they received are a real testament to their ongoing commitment to deliver excellent service and a positive customer experience. It was a hard fought battle between the top three spots and changed throughout the competition but La Reunion really pushed hard at the end.

“Those businesses who won or were commended in their category nationally can also be very proud of their achievements. With nine category winners our local businesses have certainly placed Guernsey on the map for all the right reasons.”

Restaurant Managers Nicole Schipper and Valentin Frete, from La Reunion said; “We are delighted to have won Guernsey Business of the Year 2019, to be recognised for the job we do is very satisfying. It has been a great pleasure receiving the reviews and reading what our customers think of us!  Many thanks to everyone that voted for us.”
