We are pleased to announce that the results of this year's McKinney Magazine / Chamber of Commerce poll that determines the readers' choices for the best businesses in McKinney, have been released.

And although we are humbled by being selected as the best plumbing business this year, we thank the readers and our customers for allowing us to be the ones that were able to perform for them when they needed us. Next year, we plan to continue to strive to provide the best customer service we can and we look forward to doing what we do best: solving plumbing problems efficiently.

Here are some of the companies that were chosen as winners this year:

Best Restaurant- Rick's Chophouse: If you are into ambiance in a traditional setting, the environment at Rick's will not disappoint you. Located in the Grand Hotel building, which opened in the 19th century, the friendly, relaxing surroundings combined with some of the most highly-rated wait staff in the Dallas Metro Area will help set the tone for a wide variety of chops and seafood. Rick's has been a perennial favorite in town for years- making it a nice surprise that it was chosen as restaurant of the year this year by the local Chamber of Commerce. Known regionally for its complex desserts and its chefs' prowess at cooking perfect meat every time, the restaurant appears set to continue to shine for decades to come.

Best Golf Course- Stonebridge Ranch Country Club, The Ranch Club – The Hills Course: Designed by Arthur Hills, who arguably created one of the most talked about holes in Central Texas with his 12th hole design on the Wolf dancer course, this course features 27 holes that challenge players both horizontally and vertically as it winds through the community of Stonebridge Ranch. Always a favorite for those who play there, the staff is noted for providing prompt and courteous service, while the facilities are kept in pristine condition. The course amenities include a driving range, a pro-shop, and a grill attached to the Country Club. Strange that one of the toughest courses in the area should get so much admiration- but it is in the nature of golfers to respect what they have to continually fight to beat.

And here are a few words about how we can help you:

Best Plumber- Ben Franklin Plumbing: One of the most difficult parts of growing our business by providing a wide range of services over an increasing geographic area is to ensure that we are providing you with the best customer service all of the time. But we have grown steadily and well and are driven by our commitment to helping ensure that your yard and house are free from plumbing problems. An example would be our 24-hour emergency service that we offer throughout the area. We know that when you have an emergency, that it automatically should become a huge priority for us to ensure that your problem is resolved. We therefore plan accordingly and are in touch with you within minutes, ready to solve the problem.

Another thing that we do that surprises people is we offer a complete range of services, not just large jobs. So if you want a tank-less water heater installed, we will handle it for you. On the other hand, if you slab starts leaking water, then we will get on that efficiently and effectively as well, so that in many cases, you don't even need to do excavation work for the fix to be applied. 

We also deal with gas leaks and have quite a bit of experience relieving homeowners that are worried about alleviating the possible dangers by ensuring that the work is done speedily and well.
