It’s been hard for even the most tried and true businesses out there. Everchanging protocols and ebbing and flowing waves of the pandemic have dictated how we conduct our businesses and our lives. Customer service is still as important as ever, and new criteria for what makes an establishment “the Best” has emerged. Depending on the business model, some owners are getting more creative to meet the needs of those they serve. It might be a greater honor than ever to have a large group of people endorsing the efforts of a particular doctor’s office, restaurant or pet groomer. It truly means the establishment went the extra mile, meeting qualifications they didn’t even know were required. The stakes are simply higher now, and so is maintaining the level of excellence it takes to win the hearts of our voters. That’s one reason we’re continuing the Best of Mount Pleasant celebration. We couldn’t be prouder of the winners in each of our seven categories, or of the voices that spoke up for them, and we’re proud to share even more winners in this issue. The opinions of our readers are extended with the utmost taste and consideration, with attention to what matters most. There’s no better word of mouth East of the Cooper than the Best of Mount Pleasant. Thank you, contenders, voters and exceptional winners for being the fabric of who we are and for keeping our beloved community afloat. Thank you for letting our readers and our staff share in your success. Let’s keep the celebration going! The Editors The Best of Mount Pleasant 2022 The Celebration Continues 2022 WWW.BESTOFMP.COM
