2012 Best of the Okanagan


This is the 18th consecutive year that our readers have voted for their favourite business heroes in the North, Central and South Okanagan. Happy business people who receive the hottest award in the Valley know that Okanagan Life readers vote by way of official ballot–this year by our first ever online ballot.

These quality businesses display the Best of the Okanagan award in their offices and retail stores for all to see.

In Okanagan Life’s 24-year life we’ve worked hard to highlight courageous and innovative people whose efforts and dedication to our communities, towns and cities, make the Valley the wonder it is. This story is different because readers wrote it—we simply tallied the results and created the art and design that you are devouring now.

This issue is all about recognizing the great business ideas and effort that owners, managers and staff put forth to earn their Best of the Okanagan award.

Being named the best is an honour and a privilege. Please celebrate the winners,  patronize them and thank them for living up to the moniker—Best of the Okanagan! —Paul Byrne

    Many excellent restaurants in the Okanagan.( Westbank ) Don’t know how they all make a go of it. When we came here 18 years ago from North Van, there was White Spot, ( sad to say since gone way down hill, a lot,) Terrible service-we have walked out THREE TIMES, and won’t go back, and LaCachino, Now restaurants all over the place. AND SINCE BOSTON PIZZA DON’T TAKE AIRMILES ANY MORE WE WON’T BE GOING THERE EITHER. PG LACNY
