The Winners of “Best of Collin County”

Best of Collin County

The Best of Collin County 2022 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 April 2022 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.
