THERE IT IS! The Best of Fremont 2017. We make no claims for scientific accuracy, but these choices are the result of more than 1,000 paper and electronic ballots exhaustively counted and reviewed by our dedicated staff members. They truly reflect readers’ opinions, not ours. It is important to note that mention of a business or individual here is not an endorsement of the service or product by the Fremont Argus or Bay Area News Group. We hope, if nothing else, the Best of Fremont will encourage every business to excel in service to customers the way the winners do.
