"As a local provider, we take great pride in serving our community. We know that our neighbors, our friends and our family benefit from the work we do."
Each year, the Starkville Daily News holds the Best of Starkville Readers' Choice Award. In February and March, voting is available in distinct categories for both individuals and businesses. The varied categories include automotive groups, food and dining, retail, services and others.
