What is the bbg

The Best Business Guide is an independent customer research organisation which has been operating for 17 years. It was created for the local market and based solely on the Isle of Man.

Each year we survey the whole Island asking consumers to recommend businesses, based on their experiences. Businesses who reach a strict qualification level are then included the Best Business Guide and www.bbg.im
