Each year, up to 10 Taste of Marana Standouts will be selected from the nominations submitted by community members and stakeholders via an online form. You can nominate a business for any reason that makes them stand out, such as their impact on the community, their awards from other organizations or your positive experiences with them.
The Taste of Marana committee, composed of representatives from the Town of Marana, Discover Marana and the Marana Chamber of Commerce, will meet monthly to review the nominations and choose a Standout based on their contribution to Marana’s food culture and economy. The selected business will receive a window cling or poster to display at their location for the whole year along with marketing support via Discover Marana. They will also receive a custom made culinary award to display in their business.
In August of each year, all the Taste of Marana Standouts from the past year will be invited to the Marana Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting to receive recognition by the business community and network with other local leaders.
