Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group Announces THE CABBIES Winners

Through February and March, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group launched a nomination and award system for local businesses and people in the Tampa Bay and Central Florida area. As a local real estate business themselves, they are always looking for ways to support small businesses and their community. As 2020 proved to be a tough year for small businesses, Florida Properties Group wanted to come up with a way to show support and get the name out for some local small businesses, hence their idea for “The Cabbies”.

There were 8 categories for the community to nominate for “The Cabbies”. The 8 categories include “Best Restaurant”, “Best 2020 Kitchen Remodel”, “Business to Watch” “Best Yard or Curb Appeal” “Most Impactful Business” “Best Micro Brewery” “Best Coffee Shop” and “Cutest Pet”. Each category received one winner based on the nominations and 1st and 2nd runner-ups. Over 2,500 votes were cast in total in all the categories! Without further ado the winners for each category are listed below.
