In May, Bakersfield Life Magazine debuted the Best Of Hall of Fame, the culmination of over 25 years of publishing the community’s thoughts on what the best our city has to offer in our annual Readers’ Choice Poll.

Each year, thousands of votes are cast and throughout the community, Best Of certificates are proudly displayed on windows, walls, shelves and more – a badge of honor bestowed by those who call Bakersfield home.

The Hall of Fame honors the men, women, businesses and organizations that not only have a long history of excellence in their respective fields but give back to the community in impactful ways. Not only do they provide a much-needed service to the city, but their contributions and community involvement also benefit current generations and generations to come.

Bakersfield Life Magazine is honored to introduce the inaugural inductees to the Best Of Hall of Fame: Chain Cohn Stiles, Jim Burke Ford and Urner’s!
