People Biz, Inc. would like to congratulate Fast Track participant, Wendy Carver of Hollingworth Candies for receiving the Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce in Lockport, Illinois.
After seeing sales increase this year, Wendy opened a second larger facility in Lockport so she could have more space to manufacture her toffee, candy, and chocolates.
According to Lisa Kairis, Executive Director of the Lockport Chamber of Commerce, “Hollingworth Candies is a destination location for so many people, drawing many visitors to the downtown from neighboring communities. Owners Margaret Carlson and Wendy Carver have built that business into a mainstay of Lockport.”
Wendy’s successful business along with her dedication to contributing to her community is what makes us want to celebrate and share her story with you. People Biz is honored to work with business owners like Wendy, and we know this won’t be the last time she is recognized for her leadership in the industry.
