Info about CCA

The Consumer Choice Award are unique to Canada and the United States. They allow the actual consumers in the marketplace to select businesses by category that are the best in all aspects of customer service, sales and product and service selection. This prestigious award helps future customers identify a great business within the community and allows businesses to also recognize other companies in the area that are outstanding in their services and products.

The process began in 1987, and has since evolved using third party research firms to tabulate results. Currently, the industry leading company Leger Marketing handles all surveys for the awards. This Canadian-owned business is also a member of the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN) of Market Researchers.

Without the presence of extreme bias to alter results, the award stands as a true reflection of the opinions of each marketplace. It is the goal of the Consumer Choice Awards to spotlight only the best representations of business excellence in each market, like McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes. To accomplish this, they avoid the influences of third parties like industry insiders and advocate groups, allow every person no more than one vote, and leave all results to the independent research firm.

The process of surveying each community is done following a specific set of criteria to learn which companies are the favorites in categories like best funeral home in Calgary & surrounding area. Once the leading companies are discovered, a majority vote takes place to announce the winners. There is always a great deal of competition between local businesses for the award, which makes winning far from easy. The payoff for these shops is the boost in business that results from the shift of priorities to offering outstanding service by the awards and the pride of being honored as the best in their industry by consumers. The communities benefit from being able to reward deserving stores while sharing their opinions and experiences. For their hard work and dedication, McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes has been named the Consumer Choice Award winner for best funeral home in Calgary & surrounding area.
