A renown foreign bakery and a locally owned bakery, which HAS won awards for its croissants, HAVE seen a significant decrease in the revenue since the biggest employer in the area shut down.

How do I rewrite the sentence so that the phrase "which has won awards...." applies to both the foreign and local bakery?

  • Bracketed with commas that's a non-restrictive clause. – StoneyB Sep 20 at 14:47
  • You mean 'renowned foreign bakery'. – Michael Harvey Sep 20 at 16:13

The short way would be:

... which have won awards ...

However, to make fully clear, you should add:

... both of which have won awards ...

In this way you make it clear that you refer to both businesses, not only to one.
