The community's most exceptional businesses and service agents were honored Wednesday night at The Telegraph's Best of Greater Nashua ceremony.

More than 300 attended the event at the Radisson Hotel, which honored 159 Greater Nashua businesses for everything from best taxi/limo service to best yoga service to best pizza.

"It recognizes all of the businesses - small, medium and large - that make Nashua what it is," said Nashua's economic development director Tim Cummings.

Doug Taylor, associate vice president of marketing and sales at Triangle Credit Union, which won best credit union, said he was proud to be awarded for providing excellent service.

"Credit unions are community-based, so it's good to be recognized in this way," said Taylor.

Mayor Jim Donchess spoke from the podium before the winners were awarded.

"Nashua has a real strong business community, which is one of our assets," Donchess said.

The winners were decided by a write-in ballot created in August, as well as paper ballots in the print edition of The Telegraph.

Among the major award recipients:

n James K. Stellos, founder and president of Stellos electrical contractors and longtime member of the Nashua Lions Club, won best humanitarian.

n Best service organization/club went to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua.

n Jack Mciver of the Nashua Police Department was voted best police officer, while Ron Koser of Nashua Fire Rescue was voted best firefighter.

n In the all-important food category, Surf was awarded best fine dining restaurant - Michael Buckley of Surf also won best chef - while Pressed Cafe won best food to go.

Nashua's Eastern bank sponsored the event for the third year in a row.

"Eastern Bank is a community bank, and the kind of customers we focus on are honored here," Eastern Bank Senior Vice President Deborah Blondin said.
