The Winners of “Best of Collin County”

Best of Collin County 2023

The Best of Collin County 2023 nominees were chosen by the Plano Moms team and have been repeatedly recommended in our Facebook Group “Plano Moms Talk” over the last year.

This survey was completed during June 2023 with no consultation with the nominees to ensure it was an authentic and impartial vote without the nominees asking for votes from their customers.

These nominees were voted on by local Moms who are followers of our Social Media channels, registered to our Email List, or readers on our website, to determine the winner (nominee with the highest number of votes) for each category.

  • Abbie

    Hi, I’m Abbie, super mom, and busy-bee who moved to Plano from London, England with my husband and 2 kids, Jesse and Lucy, in the Summer of 2013. Plano Moms was my lifeline when I arrived as I didn’t know anyone or anything about my new city that I now called home. When I’m not being a Plano Mom or being a taxi service to my kids, working out, cooking and reading (when I find the time!)
