BUSINESS customers have voted and the results are in for the nominations for the Lockyer Valley 2014 Heritage Bank People's Choice Award.

People had until September 24 to vote and the eight most popular businesses were chosen as finalists with the winner to be announced at the business awards gala dinner later this month.

The eight finalists are:

  • Annie's Place Das Neumann Haus
  • Coast to Country Chiropractic
  • Eagle Rock Café
  • Killing Time with Coffee
  • Kissed Hair & Beauty
  • RC's Café Bakery
  • Three Sons Café
  • Withcott Church of Christ Backyard Basement

Laidley's Eagle Rock Café will be hoping to make it back-to-back victories after winning in 2013.

Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones said the finalists should be proud of their nomination.

"As the title suggests, it's all about the people," Cr Jones said.

"he fact these eight businesses were nominated by their customers speaks volumes of what they are providing to our community," he said.

The finalists each receive two tickets to the gala night and the overall winner will take home a trophy and a $500 prize pack.

Customers who entered and voted for their favourite business will also be in the draw to win a $100 voucher at the shop of their choice within the Lockyer Valley.

The 2014 Lockyer Valley Business, Training and Apprenticeship Awards Gala Dinner will be held on October 25 at the Gatton Shire Hall.

Tickets are now on sale at the Lake Apex Visitor Information Centre, Gatton.
