FAST TRACK PARTICIPANT AWARDED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR BY LOCAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Congratulations to Accion client and Fast Track program participant Wendy Carver for her business, Hollingworth Candies, winning the Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce in Lockport, Illinois! After seeing her sales increase this year, Wendy opened a second larger manufacturing facility in Lockport to meet the growing demand for her delicious toffee, candy, and chocolates.
“Hollingworth Candies is a destination location for so many people, drawing many visitors to the downtown from neighboring communities,” said Lisa Kairis, Executive Director of the Lockport Chamber of Commerce in a press release. “Owners Margaret Carlson and Wendy Carver have built that business into a mainstay of Lockport.” Congratulations Wendy! We look forward to supporting the continued success of your business growth.
