REV 2016 top 5 businesses spotlight: Wicked Caramel Apples

November 29, 2016

TS Bank's REV is a competition that allows small businesses the chance to win up to $27,500* to ignite their business. 

After a preliminary event in October, TS Bank selected five businesses to move onto the final round, which will take place on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016, from 5 - 7:30 p.m. at the IWCC Arts Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Before the Finale, we wanted to spotlight each of the top five businesses. We would like to introduce Wicked Caramel Apples.

Name your Business: 
Wicked Caramel Apples

Sum up the product/services to you offer:
We make gourmet caramel apples so good…they’re Wicked!

Location of Business:
La Vista, NE 68128

Mission & Goals:
Our mission is to bring our amazing, high-quality, hand-dipped gourmet caramel apples to the masses. Our goal is to get our product into small specialty shops until we can open our own shop, from which we plan to offer nation-wide shipping to meet the request of many customers.

When did you start this business?
We made our first batches for family and friends in October 2015.

Why did you start this business?
We started this for several reasons. First, I had made batches and given them away. Once friends and family tried them, I literally had people begging me to make more, with the recipients telling me they wanted to pay me for them! Secondly, we saw we had a way to help others. I don’t have much to give financially to support causes we believe in, but I make a Wicked apple! We now have an opportunity to give our apples away for fundraisers, to lift spirits, and just for fun!

Your business in 1 sentence:
We make gourmet caramel apples so good…they’re Wicked!
