The Daily Times’ Reader’s Choice Poll Is Back: Vote for Russell & Abbott!

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

This is one of my favorite posts to write each year! It’s when the Daily Times runs its annual Readers’ Choice poll for the best local businesses. For the last three years, Russell & Abbott was voted the Best Heating and Air Conditioning Company in the poll. I’d like to think that my diligent work getting out the vote is responsible—but the truth is that it’s you, our great customers, who have made us #1 year after year. And I’m hoping you’ll make us #1 again for 2021. 

Here’s what you have to do… 

Phase 1 starts on March 1st, and only the top five nominees from this phase will move forward to Phase 2. From those five nominees, one will be chosen as the winner. During Phase 1, go to the Readers’ Choice 2021 page and nominate a “Best” Business in the “Business & Professional Service” category. Complete the name, address, and phone number fields, then nominate “Russell & Abbott Heating and Cooling” as the Best Heating and Air Company. Do this every day until Phase 1 ends on March 31st. Please don’t let us get bumped out during round one!

You can help me out by asking your friends, family, and buddies on social media to also nominate Russell & Abbott daily as the Best Heating and Air Company. 

Get us into Phase 2 and I’ll be back here in April with instructions on how to push us to #1 again!

Who’s the best when it comes to local HVAC? You already know the answer! Call Russell & Abbott for all your heating and cooling needs.

The Best of Blount Awards: Why Small Businesses Are a Big Deal

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

The Best of Blount AwardHere’s a tip for all you dog lovers out there, coming straight from a dog: the kind of dog food that we love to chow down on the most isn’t made by massive corporations. It comes from smaller companies that pay attention to putting the highest quality, healthy ingredients into every can or bag. And this commitment to quality is something you’ll find outside of pet food—it applies to every aspect of life, such as great heating and air conditioning service.

There’s a reason that I’m thinking about small businesses right now (and no, it’s not because I’m hungry). This time last year, MK Russell & Abbott received the Best Small Business in Blount County from the Chamber of Commerce. It was an amazing honor and a terrific recognition of our personal service to families in Blount County and the amount that we give back to the community. But awards like this are meant to be shared with other types of small businesses that make it a priority to provide locals with the best products and services.
