Best of Hoboken and Jersey City 2020: Nominate Your Favorite Local Businesses!

Written by:

We are thrilled to announce the kickoff of our Best of 2020 Hoboken and Jersey City Guide! With another year coming to a close — a strange and quite intense year at that — now is the perfect opportunity to think about all of your favorite local businesses and show them some appreciation by nominating them for an award. As always, we have lots of categories for Hoboken and Jersey City, ranging from the best pet groomer to best wellness spot to favorite Latin restaurant, and of course the categories of Hoboken Girl and Hoboken Guy of the Year — people who are exciting change in our Hudson County communities. We have a few new categories as well, so make sure to enter.

This year’s 2020 Best of Hoboken + Jersey City Guide is brought to you by our Gold Sponsor

Dental Associates of Hoboken!

The popular “Breakout Business of the Year” title is again up for grabs – a hot contender year after year, and we’ve added a few new categories as well.

You can nominate as many businesses, people, and places for each respective category from now until November 11th, so don’t hold back.  Once we tally your votes, we’ll be announcing our top three finalists in each category, and then it’s time to vote for the winner.

Finalists will win a decal sticker to display on their storefront and accolades on our website for all to see. You can see past 2019 winners here.

You are the reason these businesses are so successful, so share how much you love them and nominate for every and any category. Scroll down for info on how to nominate, and get to voting:
