In August and September, we invited readers to our website to take an online survey to tell us who their Fort Bend favorites are in eight different categories:

FOOD • ENTERTAINMENT • SHOPPING • AUTO SERVICES • HOME IMPROVEMENT • PROFESSIONAL SERVICES • PET SERVICES • CARE SERVICES

And boy, did they come through! With nearly 800 votes, readers voiced their opinion on their favorites. Take a look and see who won this year’s Fort Bend Focus Favs Readers’ Choice Awards!

Voting for the 2018 Fort Bend Focus Favs Readers’ Choice Awards was conducted online at www.FortBendFocus.com from August 1 to September 30, 2018. The results were collected and tabulated using PollDaddy.com. In the event of a tie, all winners are listed.
