Welcome to Des Moines' People's Choice


Des Moines Radio Group is thrilled to bring you our second edition of Des Moines’ People’s Choice. This magazine showcases and celebrates the businesses, people, and places Central Iowa loves most—as voted by you, our listeners. 


A little behind-the-scenes – You nominated over 2,300 businesses, organizations, and individuals to compete for the top two spots in Des Moines’ People’s Choice. In the end, there were more than 166,000 votes by you in 247 categories. It is a fantastic response in our second year and a testament to how customers, fans, and friends feel about their local favorites and their pride in Central Iowa. 


Naturally, this program would not have been possible without the dedicated Des Moines Radio Group staff and committed area businesses who built this chance to salute and highlight favorites. We are humbled and honored that our advertisers have helped make this printed guide possible for you to find the best of the best easily. 


Des Moines’ People’s Choice is the kind of project that makes the Des Moines Radio Group a unique member of the Central Iowa community. We are the leading media group in Iowa, offering customization, integration, and activation through a diverse line-up of advertising opportunities and customer-reach tools. 


Not only does DMRG have top local on-air programming with local talent, but we create events and work with nonprofits. We design campaigns with social media and digital platforms and a great database of loyal listeners for direct marketing. And we offer in-house creative, and custom solutions, too. It is all about helping Central Iowa businesses succeed. 


As I said at the start, thank you to all of you who took the time to vote and help the businesses in these pages succeed. We encourage you to explore and engage with our winners. Many may be familiar, some may be new to you, and all will welcome your business. 


Oh, and please, congratulate them for being voted Des Moines’ People’s Choice!
