Star Tribune created this program to support and give visibility to our local and regional businesses during a very challenging time. Our goal was to not only help these businesses survive but to thrive. And we like to think our 2021 initiative was a great success, as we had tremendous participation among the business community and with our readers.

Minnesota’s Best celebrates that culture and the organizations that help people here thrive. We seek nominations for the very best of Minnesota’s professionals, businesses, restaurants, and cultural institutions. Though we ask Minnesotans to vote on which of these are the best, we will shine a spotlight on all who are nominated.

How Does Minnesota's Best by Star Tribune Benefit My Business?


When Star Tribune readers nominate you as one of Minnesota’s Best, you’re placed on a ballot with the nominees from each category. Those nominees are then published and promoted by the Star Tribune and voted on by Star Tribune’s vast readership.


Just being nominated gives your business a cachet. You can also display Minnesota’s Best Nominee logo at your locations and in your marketing — signifying that you are one of the best businesses in your category.


And if you win, you get even more recognition. All winners will be published on Minnesota’s Best website and in the first edition of Minnesota’s Best Magazine.
