What is the best advice anyone has ever given you about business? The best advice we got was from another small business owner to apply to do Rockford City Market, We are now in our third year.
Why did you choose Winnebago County to start your business? We moved back to Rockford from the Naperville area to exclusively start our food business, hoping that we would get hometown support, and knowledge to help us grow. We were right! The people of Winnebago County have been nothing but supportive, and have recommended us for many events. I love my hometown!
As a business owner, why do you feel buying locally is important to our community? We find it important to keep our dollars in our community, so we try to support local businesses and encourage others to do so also.
