Tell Us About Locals Love Us
Locals Love Us 02 Locals Love Us is a group of people who believe that there is a lot to love in every community, but that it's not always easy to find. Our world of constant negative news and online attacks can cause us to lose sight of what we really love about where we live. Our passion is to sift through the noise, discover what the locals love and then let everyone know about it. We call it sharing the love. We launched as The Local Best in 2004 and started expanding in 2011 as Locals Love Us.

How Did You Get Started?
It was a simple action that led to the founding of Locals Love Us. One that takes place hundreds of times every day. Someone rolls into town and asks a person who looks like they've been standing in the same place for decades: "where can I find a good _____?" The locals know the answer to that question no matter how you fill in the blank. And while any one person might not know, if you ask thousands of people, you're bound to get the answer.

Who Has Time To Ask All Those People Who They Love?
That's why Locals Love Us exists. You see, we don't just ask anyone what or who they love the most. We ask everyone. We gather information/votes on our site, and then we tally and publish the list of the most loved places - everything from roofing contractors to real estate agents and restaurants - in an annual print and online directory. So when you come to town, you don't need to ask the question. We already did.

We're here to deliver joy through our mission of sharing the love. We do this by caring for our culture, our people, and the communities we serve. We hire for passion and attitude, and empower people to make a difference. We look to Colossians 3:23 for inspiration, pouring our hearts into everything we do.


Locals Love Us 04

Media is undergoing a profound shift as consumers gravitate away from mass-marketing and toward sources of information that they trust. They’re seeking easily accessible, unbiased info they can use to make purchasing decisions.

But not all unbiased information is created equal. Locals Love Us has spent a decade building a system superior to others in this space.

Why Do Consumers Love Us?

  • By publishing a free directory in print and online, our trusted information can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
  • Rather than asking anyone, we ask everyone in town to vote for their favorite places. The more responses you get to a question, the more likely you are to find the most-loved places.
  • By only asking locals to vote, we ensure that we’re getting opinions from those who know best.

Why Do Businesses Love Us?

  • Businesses already know that Word-of-Mouth is their most effective form of advertising and can see how Locals Love Us extends it to a broader audience.
  • Our secure, online voting system prevents cheating or stuffing the ballot box, instilling confidence in the survey results.
  • By using votes, rather than reviews, we avoid the undue influence given to early reviews, especially if those reviews are negative.

Why Do Franchisees Love Us?

  • The strength of the Locals Love Us brand drives rapid adoption by local businesses, who campaign for the honor, and high visibility with consumers seeking reputable businesses.
  • The experience we’ve gained from a decade of operating Locals Love Us markets gives us the ability to provide franchisees with superior systems and support.
  • There is a growing network of Locals Love Us franchisees who support each other and want to see everyone succeed.
