Pennsylvania’s Top Rated Local® Businesses: 2020

While there’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, we didn’t want to let that stop us from celebrating the amazing small businesses of Pennsylvania!

Known for the Liberty Bell, a historic symbol of freedom and justice, Pennsylvania is a wonderful state to live in and visit. As the birthplace of the American flag, which was made by Betsy Ross, and home to James Buchanan, Reggie Jackson, and Will Smith, the Keystone State is also home to a number of truly incredible local businesses — from acupuncturists to window cleaners — 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 Pennsylvania such a phenomenal place to live and visit. There are so many amazing businesses that serve the people of Pennsylvania, 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 Pennsylvania.

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 Pennsylvania and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 406 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 97.73 and average star rating of 4.89. For comparison, businesses across Top Rated Local average a 68.94 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 Pennsylvania that deserve to be recognized for their success, but we’re especially excited to give a shoutout to the number one award-winner in Pennsylvania for 2020 — Klock Entertainment. An event planning company that does everything from weddings to corporate events, Klock Entertainment is Harrisburg’s premier source for next-level events. Klock Entertainment has received 1,537 reviews across six verified reviews sites with an average star rating of 4.95, which has earned it a phenomenal Rating Score of 100.00 and the bragging rights of being the number one Top Rated Local business in all of Pennsylvania for 2020.

Congratulations to all of our award winners in Pennsylvania for 2020. We commend you for the outstanding service and support you provide for your community day in and day out.

The final project turned out great. We were quite pleased with Tussey and would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality, local company for their landscaping needs.” – Curt O.

Not Your Average Landscaping Company

We wanted to know what makes Pennsylvania’s number one landscaping company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with Construction Foreman and Marketing Director, Weston Zimmerman.

The first question we had for Weston was what makes Tussey Landscaping unique compared to their competition in Pennsylvania. Here’s what he had to say:

“We care about way more than just the product; we sell a space where people can connect with their families and friends. The customer experience is very important to us. Not everything goes according to plan, and what matters is how you are going to make it right.”

Building Success by Asking for Reviews

When we asked Weston what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Tussey Landscaping, he said:

“After a project, we send emails that ask how we did on the job and if the client would be willing to leave a review online. We also pay attention when we are in the field and listen to clients. When they are really appreciative of the work we did, we ask them to leave a review right there on the spot.”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Tussey Landscaping has spread the word about their service by having consistent branding across all major platforms as well as through their more informational-based marketing strategy.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Tussey Landscaping has. Here’s Weston’s advice for them:

“You have to walk before you can run. It doesn’t happen overnight. It takes consistently following the processes that you have in place on every single job and holding yourself to that.”


Congratulations to the team at Tussey Landscaping for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Weston, for taking the time to speak with us!

It’s our employees that make the difference.”

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“I am a contractor that owns a stucco remediation company. When we were completed, we asked Jon and his crew to clean all of the windows and doors for us. The client said that their windows have never looked so nice. Jon was quick to respond, and his entire crew was very professional. I will use them for each job moving forward.” – Timothy L.

Not Your Average Window Cleaner

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Jon VanSpriell, the owner of Jon’s Window Cleaning.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Jon about what makes Jon’s Window Cleaning unique compared to the many other window cleaners in Pennsylvania. Jon told us that, in addition to window cleaning, they offer a wide range of exterior cleaning services, and said:

“Our standards of what’s considered professionally cleaned windows are one of the things that set us apart. There is just more detail that goes into what we’re doing to make sure that the window is clean. …It’s obvious that we do what we do at an elite level, and we do it pretty quickly, too, which just astounds people… I was mentored into this. I got hooked up with a guy who was just the best window cleaner. …His best advice was, ‘Take your time and worry about all of these little details, and your speed will come. You have to have the quality first but with window cleaning, quality and efficiency go hand in hand.’”

Jon went on to add:

“As a business owner, I’ve learned to share the wealth. You’re all going to win, and it’s worth it to keep your guys happy. I’ve been doing it since I was 25. I wanted it to feel like a family.”

We also asked Jon about the Jon’s Window Cleaning mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Jon shared with us that they believe that homeowners deserve peace of mind, and they provide them with peace of mind through clean windows that bring in light and set people’s mood. Jon added:

“It’s an indirect way of affecting the world. Moods matter, and if you’re feeling good about things and you walk into your house and say, ‘Wow, this is great. This is awesome,’ you’re calling us again next year. That’s going to help you thrive and help your family thrive. More light enhances your mood.”

Building Success by Treating Clients Like Friends

Jon credits Jon’s Window Cleaning’s strong online reputation to their commitment to being more personable, being more approachable and treating their clients like friends. Jon and his team are dedicated to staying on top of communication, and Jon told us that his professional crew, which is made of up Joe, Drew and Chris, was handpicked to ensure that they are the best.

Jon added:

“We’re trying to give you the best quality we can for the best price…”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Jon’s Window Cleaning has grown through their branded vehicle, as well as word of mouth.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Jon’s expert advice for them:

“You’ve got to be willing to do some free stuff. It pays off if you do some free stuff. That’s what did it for us. You make that sacrifice where you put in the time and you won’t get the return immediately. Be willing to do it for less at first. Make sure to get your quality down. Make sure you know what you’re talking about.

I’m friendly with my competitors. I think that’s helpful to be friendly with the competitors because there’s enough business for everyone. You can learn because when you get a relationship with someone, you can talk shop with them. Be a good listener.

“Spend the money that it takes for a good website; spend the money on marketing. Make the investment. Don’t expect a return.”


Congratulations to Jon’s Window Cleaning for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Jon, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Jon’s Window Cleaning. Visit their website today!
