The Foodie’s Choice Awards
is all about
celebrating the best local, independent restaurants
The Foodie’s Choice Awards were created by Joyous to give local, independent restaurants another way to promote themselves without lifting a finger.
We empower diners to express their love of their favorite local, independent restaurants through a people’s choice style awards process that includes a nomination phase and a voting phase.
Begun in 2021, we launched a pilot program of the awards in the Beaverton/Hillsboro region and in 2022 we will roll out to more regions in the Portland Metro Area.
There is no cost to restaurants to participate.
Nominators and voters can also participate for free.
We created the awards to give diners a way to celebrate their favorite local, independent restaurants that wouldn’t cost those restaurants any money or create any work for them.
It’s another way for local, independent restaurants to level the playing field with their competitors in corporate restaurants and franchises.
