Susie Wissmann of Master’s Hands Candle Company applied for and was approved to be a stop on the Nebraska Passport Tour this year. She expected more business through the summer but she did not expect the large amount of traffic nor the publicity that she received as soon as the program started. Below is her testimonial.
“Just a QUICK e-mail update as it is CRAZY BUSY here!!!! Thanks so much for helping us be a part of the Nebraska Tour deal!!! We have been SO busy here because of it! If we keep this up, we will have OVER doubled our May from our 2011 May! Incredible! AND….. we hired 2 new people! How cool is that?!?!?! Because of being a part of the Nebraska tour we were also picked to be interviewed by KETV Omaha! WAHOO!!! ….. AND we were selected as one of the top 100 places to visit in Nebraska by the Omaha World Herald! WHAT!?!?!?! I’m overwhelmed with gratitude to you all!!! We will keep serving folks and making sure they have a great time! We want to make you proud of us!! Just wanted to let you know and tell you THANKS for helping us GROW!
