Update: Nominations are open. Click here to begin your nominations.

Winning “Best of the Triangle” has been a coveted honor for individuals and businesses for the last 22 years—yep, twenty-two years! The INDY Week star decal is the most recognizable sign of a great business within the Triangle. It demonstrates the dedicated love a business earned throughout the year from folks just like you.

Get ready to nominate your favorite local businesses starting February 14 through March 6.                      

The final vote for the top nominees will run from April 11 to May 8, and the 2022 winners will be announced in the June 15 issue of the INDY. Pick up a copy near you.


Please write in a nomination to show your support for your favorite local businesses! Please only make one nomination per category. (That means one vote per person; do not vote from multiple email addresses.)

Once nominations close, the top four with the most nominations in each category will advance to the final ballot. An email will be needed for registration to ensure ballot integrity. The INDY reserves the right to reject any ballot that appears to violate the spirit of the Best of the Triangle poll.
