We would like to congratulate the winners, finalists and all the local businesses that were nominated for a People’s Choice Award this year! The 2nd Annual Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards put the spotlight on the eclectic diversity of local businesses we have here on the coast, helped to celebrate and promote positive stories of community building and economic brilliance, and was a fun and inclusive online event, bringing our community together.

Whether you’re looking for a great place to grab a bite to eat, or if you’re in need of an accounting firm, a home builder, a grocery store, a nail salon or anything and everything in between—we’ve got you covered! The people have spoken and below are this year’s coastal favourites!

Let’s continue to celebrate and support our vibrant local business community here on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, each and every local business, small or large, adds something unique, different, and one-of-a kind, and only together can they create the exciting, livable coastal community we are proud to call home.
