In fact, Sunshine Ace is the only business to ever earn that honor since the media company introduced its “Best of Naples” readers choice awards 18 years ago. Sunshine Ace offers power tools, electrical and plumbing supplies, hand tools, paint, barbecue grills, fishing equipment, home goods, garden supplies, outdoor chairs and games, apparel and gifts, as well as a variety of residential and commercial services. 

“To be one of just a few businesses to earn the ‘Best of Naples’ award since the program’s inception is quite an accomplishment given how much our region has grown over the past 18 years,” said Michael Wynn, president of Sunshine Ace Hardware. “Our company continues with the values set by my grandfather – take care of our team, provide world-class helpful service and support our communities.” 

Sunshine Ace also earned a gold award as the “Best Place to Buy Barbecue Grills.” Stores carry an expansive selection of gas, charcoal, pellet and electric grills by top manufacturers like Weber, Traeger and Big Green Egg. Grill masters also can find accessories like thermometers, covers, racks and utensils.

In any business, your customers’ and readers’ opinions matter,” said Best of Naples program emcee Gina Birch. “This program allows us to find out who local residents consider to be ‘the best’ in Naples in a variety of different categories.”
