RoCo Gold


You have found the BEST of ROWAN COUNTY!

The annual Rowan County Gold People’s Choice Awards started in 2016 to find some of the area’s finest restaurants, retail stores, service providers, entertainment venues, people and all that makes Rowan County great.

The awards and recognition are results voted on by the people of Rowan County, North Carolina who use and know them the most. With so many fine choices the competition was tough.

Keep this guide handy as thousands of locals told us why Rowan County is such a great place to live, shop, eat, work and play. We thank everyone who took the time to vote. 

How it works: The community nominates businesses/people in categories provided by RoCo Gold. (Nominations are only accepted once per category per user.) The top 5 nominees (the five with the most nominations) will be moved to the Voting Round. The community can vote once a day during the voting period. The top three vote getters will win! One winner and two finalists will be announced in the Winners Edition at the end of October in the Salisbury Post.
