Old-fashion service key to QT award

THERE is tough competition when it comes to customer service in Ipswich.

More than 200 people took the chance to name a business for great customer service in the Queensland Times Top 10 Business nominations.

The Facebook-led nominations began earlier this week to help celebrate the QT campaign City Pride, where shopping locally gives you the chance to win up to $5500.

Thanks to plenty of support from eager Facebook fans, Limestone St cafe Tomato Brothers took out the top spot in the customer service category.

Despite never using Facebook himself, Tomato Brothers cafe owner Jeff Rush said it was great to see the younger generation using it for word of mouth.

Pizzas are handmade on-site using fresh ingredients, something the cafe owner said helped secure their good reputation. "Everything is done the old-fashioned way," he said. "It's important that we get it right when people come in there."

You can keep taking part in our calls to nominate the top businesses in Ipswich. The next category, New Business, will be opened for nominations and votes today at facebook.com/thequeenslandtimes.
