Best of Chicago & the Suburbs: Vote for Best of 2021

Voting is now closed.

At Better, one of our favorite times of the year is always our annual Best Of competition—a time to recognize and show love to our local businesses. We ask you, our readers, to vote on the best businesses around the North Shore and Chicago. As we begin to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic with optimism, now is the perfect time to lift up the businesses that have worked so hard to stay afloat — and those that have opened up for the very first time — over the past 15 months.

This year, voters will choose winners from a selection of finalists or write in their own favorite. Voting ends on June 29th at 5pm CST. Winners will be celebrated on August 3!

Please note that winners will be notified by email in July. Questions? Email [email protected].
