Missouri’s Top Rated Local® Businesses: 2020

From its mouthwatering, world-famous BBQ to the towering Gateway Arch, Missouri is known for so many wonderful things. In addition to being the birthplace of Anheuser-Busch, as well as home to many famous people, like Mark Twain, Yogi Berra, and Walt Disney, the Show Me State is also home to a number of truly incredible local businesses — from nail salons to accounting firms — that work to serve their communities and make the world a better place.

Top Rated Local® is here to recognize the many local businesses that work to make Missouri such a phenomenal place to live and visit. There are so many amazing businesses that serve the people of Missouri, but only the best of the best have made it on our list of Top Rated Local award winners for 2020. Today, we’re ecstatic to announce our 2020 award winners in Missouri.

To calculate our 2020 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 a large number of businesses that work hard to serve the people of Missouri and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 397 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 97.82 and average star rating of 4.89. For comparison, businesses across Top Rated Local average a 68.81 Rating Score and a 4.20 star rating. These businesses are truly the best of the best.

There are so many stand-out businesses in Missouri that deserve to be recognized for their success, but we’re especially excited to give a shoutout to the number one award-winner in Missouri for 2020 — Depot Inn & Suites. A unique hotel that’s designed after an 1800s railroad depot, Depot Inn & Suites is La Plata’s premier getaway experience.
