If you live in the Denver area, you are most likely aware of the Mile High Awards as you will see different businesses post their winnings within their buildings or you will see the winners in the annual Best of Mile High Magazine.  This award is thoroughly credible as it uses a multistep process to include local’s votes, reviews and reference data from the Better Business Bureau.  There are many categories to include most types of business ranging from restaurants and breweries to art galleries and child care.  One winner that stands out is Church Ranch Event Center in the Event Center category.  It is a difficult category as the event industry is competitive and ever changing.

How it Works

The Best of Mile High prides itself in the process of determining the best business in Denver.  It includes many steps to ensure that it is not just a popularity contest, but is based on free participation, fraud prevention, online reviews, and BBB (Better Business Bureau) ratings.  This process ensures that the business awards not only have the support of people, but also have the facts to back them.  Here is a description of the process.

Step 1: Nominations – There are different categories in the Best of Mile High awards and locals can nominate businesses for that year in December.  Up to ten candidates per category will then be approved in January.

Step 2: Voting – Local residents can then vote once per category.  The top three in each category will move on as finalists.

Step 3: Reputation – The board will capture the previous 12 calendar months of online reviews.  Then, the finalist’s overall rating and the number of 5-star reviews (averaged, if multiple locations) on Google are included in the equation. Basically, the higher the rating and the more 5-star reviews received, the better the chances are of winning.  The board also references data from the Better Business Bureau to make sure only the best businesses are crowned the winners. However, the BBB Accreditation does not influence results.

Because reviews are more difficult to obtain, they are given more value in the final calculation. The simplified formula for determining the winners of each category is 5-Star Reviews x Overall Rating + Votes.

Step 4: Winners – Awards will be given to the top three finalists, but there is still only one winner in each category.  Once the votes and reviews have been tallied, and the BBB ratings have been checked, the winners will be announced at the Best of Mile High Awards Ceremony and then posted on the website within a few business days.  Finally, the finalists and winners are  announced in the annual Best of Mile High Magazine that is scheduled to be published within a couple of months after the awards ceremony.

Event Center Winner: Church Ranch

The Church Ranch Event Center in Westminster Colorado is a standout amongst the winners because the category itself is prestigious based on the industry.  The event industry is highly competitive, diverse as there are many types of events, and is ever changing.

The reviews speak for themselves as to why Church Ranch is a winner.  It comes down to facility, management, and customer service.

Facility – The facility at Church Ranch Event Center is unlike any other facility in the Denver area.  It rivals event centers in the Colorado mountains such of those in Vail or Aspen.  Its outdoor grounds include flowing gardens, impeccable water features and an abundance of majestic trees. The ceremony area features a unique flagstone stage and a crisp white arbor, making for the perfect ceremonial focal point for Colorado weddings.  The Grand Hall is located right off the manicured grounds and its glass doors offer the most picture-perfect wedding reception entrance.  The interior is no less with a vaulted ceiling and exposed wooden beam trusses to give the authentic Colorado feel both indoors and out.

Management – It is no easy task to maintain grounds of an impeccable venue as well as keep up with a service industry.  The owner, Brad Hawkins, and General Manager, Eric Gardner make a great team when it comes to thriving in a difficult industry.  From facility upkeep, procedures, and partnerships and relationships with other professionals in the industry such as caterers, photographers, DJs, florists, and so much more, are constantly being made to ensure the success of every event.

Customer Service – The staff at Church Ranch treats every event and customer with the highest quality care.  In the event industry, each event is of huge importance as there are weddings, celebrations of life, quinceañeras, proms, and many more momentous events.  The staff has the mentality to not treat it as any other day, but participates in the event with them and is trained to ensure that nothing goes wrong.
