City Beat News was founded as an independent research and publishing company that strives to provide a voice to the consumer about those unheralded small businesses that deliver exceptional service and experiences.

We seek out, rate and recognize companies that are the hidden gems of our communities. In the process, we’ve removed the bias — both positive and negative — that is inherent in most ratings and reviews.

The result is a comprehensive, unbiased and accurate research-based rating that gives guidance to purchase decisions consumers make each and every day. We believe this is good for consumers, good for business, and good for building the trust and credibility that powers our communities and economies.
