okcBIZ announces 2014 Best of Business finalists

BOB 2014 logo


Readers cast their votes online throughout the year to choose their favorite suppliers and business partners. The Best of Business winners in each category will be featured on the okc.BIZ website, in a special Best of Business 2014 Buzz on okc.BIZ email product and in a special Buzz on okc.BIZ section published in the May 14, 2014 issue of Oklahoma Gazette.

“Great businesses that consistently offer great products and services should be recognized for it,” said Dave Rhea, general manager of Tierra Media Group, parent company of okc.BIZ and Oklahoma Gazette. “Through this program, customers, vendors and stakeholders have an excellent opportunity to do just that. It is also an important opportunity for these companies to receive unsolicited performance feedback.”

Winners have historically been announced and the top five businesses recognized at an annual luncheon. This year, the announcement will be made in the May 14 issue of Oklahoma Gazette’s Buzz on okc.BIZ section.

“We’re excited to expand this program recognition to the additional readership of Oklahoma Gazette. We feel that exposing local commerce and business owners to the Central Oklahoma B2B sector is a win-win for everyone,” said Rhea.
