Each year, the St. Petersburg Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the St. Petersburg area a great place to live, work and play.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2020 St. Petersburg Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the St. Petersburg Award Program and data provided by third parties.
