Over 100 Vermont Companies Recognized as the Best in their Category

Vermont Business Magazine After more than two years of all of us dealing with this global pandemic, VermontBiz, is proud to announce the 2022 Best of Business Awards (BOB Awards) winners. This awards program celebrates the best Vermont companies in more than 100 business-to-business categories. All of these businesses have been affected by the pandemic in one form or another and like us at VB we are looking forward to the day when business and life in general can get back to some form of normalcy. We do see a light at the end of that tunnel. Vermont businesses are very resilient and deserve to be recognized for their commitment to Vermont consumers. 

VB readers chose the winners! Starting on January 1, 2022 and closing on March 1st, VB surveyed its magazine and digital subscribers.  We asked our readers – the business leaders of Vermont – who they trust to provide their services in over 100 different categories. After over 68,000 votes, up more than 40% over 2021, we compiled the go-to list in the state for everything from Best Hotel and Best Engineering Firm to Best Vermont Made Product. Some of the questions and answers were based on a regional perspective while most of the categories were looking for statewide winners.

Vermont Biz has spent the last 50 years forging its relationship with Vermont's business community and the BOB Awards provides an opportunity to tell us, other readers and the rest of the state which companies in Vermont have the best products and services for businesses. This is the sixth year that VB has surveyed its readers to find the Best of the Best companies in Vermont.

The results of the BOB Awards speak to the stand-out businesses in Vermont: the ones that offer the best customer service, that are willing to go above and beyond and to pay attention to detail. VB is proud to share the results honoring the Best of Business in Vermont for 2022.
