7th Annual Best of the West: Services & People

Written by  Josh Veal

Services and people — they make the world go ‘round.

Who do you trust? With your hair, your dog, your events, your money? That’s what the Services & People categories are all about. 

Clearly, West Michiganders trust credit unions, which is why they always win the Bank and Credit Union category. We also love Henchmen House, winning once again this year. Dan Dixon remains a favorite bartender after many years in a row. Meanwhile, people here love Chef Jenna Arcidiacano, not only thanks to her delicious cooking at Amore Trattoria, but due to the way she constantly is giving back to the community.

We saw some changes as well, of course! Chasing Vanity shot up to the top of Salon, and Woodhouse came out of nowhere to take the Spa category. The fitness club/gym category changed quite a bit, with CKO Kickboxing kicking MVP Athletic Club right out of the finalists! 

There could be 1,000 Services & People categories and we still wouldn’t be able to reward everyone in West Michigan who makes our community special.
