Supporters voted online for the 40 brands in the mix for this year’s Zor Awards. The final tallies comprise one of three key pillars—along with the heavily weighted editorial research and financial returns to operators—to select the winners. A recap:

Around the House: Mr. Handyman got the votes, but The Glass Guru was chosen by our editorial team to win the category.

Quick Flip: Freddy’s won in votes but Culver’s was declared the top buy.

Fresh Baked: McAlister’s Deli outdid the rest of the field and our editorial team agreed.

Cut & Dry: Five Star Painting, our overall winner, also garnered the most votes in the category of lawn service and painting brands.

Game, Set, Match: Hooters edged out Twin Peaks, but the latter is the overall winner.

After the Storm: Rainbow International was the top vote-getter, but Paul Davis Restoration is the category winner.

Window Shopping: Fleet Feet drew the most votes, but uBreakiFix won the category.

Sweat It Out: Title Boxing barely beat CycleBar but finished fourth in our overall evaluation. CycleBar, meanwhile, wins the category.

Help Wanted: Express  Employment won the voting battle, but PrideStaff was deemed overall winner.

Bring It Home: Hungry Howie’s garnered the most votes, but Toppers proved itself the winner.
