Bakersfield Life's "Best Of" competition winners will be revealed in the May issue of the magazine that comes out Saturday, but in the meantime readers are getting a sneak peek at some of the winners.
David Perkins, marketing director at Urner's, was on "First Look with Scott Cox" Monday. Magazine managing editor Jorge Barrientos revealed that Urner's is the winner for customer service.
Readers had the opportunity to vote on the "best of" in 108 categories in this 20th anniversary of the competition. In each, there are two "favorites" and one "best" winner.
"You'll be surprised by some," Barrientos said of the winners, explaining there are some categories new to the competition this year.
Urner's is a favorite in several categories, Barrientos said. Perkins attributed the recognition in the customer service category to the people who work there.
"It becomes more of a family atmosphere than just selling product," Perkins said. He added, "These guys know their product intimately."
