California Businesses Honored by City Beat News with Spectrum Awards for Customer Satisfaction

City Beat News’ most recent group of Spectrum Award recipients includes repeat winners located in California.

Lapeer, MI, February 19, 2019 --( City Beat News has just announced its most recent recipients of the prestigious Spectrum Customer Satisfaction Award, and several businesses in California made the list again.

Winners of the Spectrum Award are based on City Beat News’ independent, proprietary research and evaluation system. The rating system combines data collected from nominations, online and other customer reviews, surveys, blogs, social networks, business-rating services, and other honors and accolades — all of which express the voice of the customer. Those that earn a 4-star or 5-star rating receive the Spectrum Award.

Seven-time Spectrum Award winner Fortes Auto Body ( in Sunnyvale has been serving the greater area since 1979. The family-run collision repair shop has developed a reputation for positive relationships with customers, insurance companies and vendors. Its priorities are customers and quality workmanship, so it backs all of its work with a vehicle lifetime guarantee (while the customer owns the vehicle), all to ensure customers are completely satisfied with the job.
