According to Stephen Werner, Kfm station manager: “The Kfm Best of the Cape awards is about people coming together to celebrate this beautiful place we call home – the best sights, tastes, experiences, businesses and communities that you won't find anywhere else in the world. We were blown away by the outpour of support last year. We can’t wait to recognise and celebrate many more worthy winners in 2022."

Last year's 'Best Date Night' winner was Avontuur Estate Restaurant. According to Zunia, Melanie and the staff at the restaurant: "Winning meant increased exposure, increased visitors, more bookings, more phone calls, and the fact that we made it to 20 years without closing our doors. It has been an incredible boost to us and has helped us keep our staff employed and our doors open. Thank you again for this incredible initiative. You have done more for the hospitality industry and smaller businesses than you can ever know."

According to Joy Borovanska, head of marketing at J&M Famous Biltong: "Consumers were congratulating our staff when purchasing J&M biltong and mentioning that they had voted for us. We couldn't have done it without our fans and hardworking J&M employees. It has been such an honour for our team to win this award. For a brand that originated in Seapoint in 1942, this is a fantastic achievement."

Darling Brew was the winner of the 'Best Local Craft Beer' award. Says Harry Dare, national sales and marketing manager: "It lets the consumer know that Darling Brew is doing the right thing and that our beers are of the highest standards. The brand exposure was also great in a day-to-day sense – our taste rooms in Darling and Woodstock both experienced increased traffic."
