Winners Of Cortland County Chamber's 2nd Annual People's Choice Awards Are Out
The Cortland County Chamber of Commerce has announced the winners of the Chambers 2nd annual People’s Choice Awards.
According to Chamber Director Bob Haight the awards are an effort to recognize local business who stand tall among their competitors by allowing the public to vote for local businesses, products, and services that they think are the best of the best.
Last year Cortland County residents voted for the best hamburger in town, the best retail store, and the best small employer. The winners were Central City Bar and Grill, The Bling Store on Main Street in Cortland, and Thoma Consultants.
This year the chamber asked the community who makes the best chicken wing and who the best large employer is. After receiving several hundred votes through the Chamber’s website, Pontillos’ Pizzeria in Cortland was declared the best wing and the Cortland Regional Medical Center was voted the best large employer.
Jeff Constantino owner of Pontillo’s now in its 31st year says he appreciates the public’s support; he attributed the business success to his family’s recipes, his dedicated employees, and his customers.
Cortland Regional Medical Center Vice President Denise Wrinn says this award recognizes that the staff appreciates the hospital and enjoys working there and in turn serving the community.
The winners were recognized at an Awards Lunch at Gatherings in Virgil yesterday.
Haight says the Chamber board is working on categories for next year’s award categories, any suggestions you can email the chamber at info@CortlandAreaChamber.com
