Though it may be best known for its historical battlefields and breathtaking scenery (it’s not called “the Switzerland of the United States” for nothing), West Virginia is also home to some of the nation’s top local businesses. From barber shops and beauty salons to electricians and plumbers, there are many local businesses that serve the great state of West Virginia, but only the most notable can call themselves Top Rated Local® award winners. Today, we’re excited to share with you which companies have that honor for 2019.
To calculate our 2019 winners, we’ve looked at each business’ Rating Score™, which is determined by the total number of verified review sites the business is listed on, the total number of ratings/reviews the business has on those review sites and the business’ average overall star rating. The more review sites a business is listed on, the more reviews or ratings a business has and the higher the average star rating, the higher the Rating Score will be, with the highest being 100.00.
There are so many businesses that work hard to serve the people of West Virginia and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 315 total businesses that have made the cut. These one-of-a-kind, local businesses have clearly made an impact on the customers and clients they serve each and every day, as evidenced by their impressive average Rating Score of 95.03 and average star rating of 4.87. For comparison, businesses across Top Rated Local average a 69.15 Rating Score and a 4.24 star rating. These businesses are truly the best of the best.
There are so many stand-out businesses in West Virginia that deserve to be recognized for their success, but we’re especially excited to give a shoutout to the number one award-winner in West Virginia for 2019 — Michael J.
