What services do you offer? We offer third-party, on-demand delivery service for local restaurants, bars and businesses. In addition to delivering, we market the businesses we partner with by promoting their products and services on our social media platforms and include them in our own marketing campaigns.

How many years has your business been a Chamber member? We are a new member of the Siouxland Chamber. We have been a member less than one year.

What is the best part about being a Chamber member? I enjoy learning about new businesses or businesses that I haven’t heard about before. I also like the option to socialize and meet new people outside of a bar atmosphere. I also like the idea of meeting people who want to support our community and find new ideas to bring people to Siouxland.

What is a fun or surprising fact about your company? The idea for my business came after I spent over 8 months at home during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. During those 8 months I had everything delivered to me and I also purchased several items on Amazon. I realized then, if we could create our own delivery network within Siouxland, we could make buying local as convenient as Amazon has made it not to. My long-term goals are to offer more than just restaurant delivery. I’d like to see our services used to deliver products, same day, within Siouxland that most of us look to Amazon to purchase.

Thirty-three professionals graduated from Leadership Siouxland in May, joining well over one thousand others as the newest alumni of this organization that was founded in 1981.  The nine month community leadership development program curriculum provided the class participants the chance to learn about themselves, their community, and to form lasting relationships with other professionals. 

This year’s program was structured differently due to the constraints of the Pandemic.  The majority of the classes were offered virtually; and community projects were replaced by “connection circles”.  This change in structure did not affect the engagement or enthusiasm of the participants or the speakers.  We all learned together that challenges stretch us and make us stronger. 

The graduates are now poised to add value and make positive differences in their community.  The graduates and their sponsoring organization/business are:  Willy Bass, Danielle Gutierrez and Dulcie Greene, sponsored by Ho Chunk Inc; Amanda Brophy and Erich Erdman, sponsored by Sunnybrook Community Church; Aaron Christensen and DeAnna Pennings Faris, 185th Refueling Wing; Kelly Greenfield Joe Hofmeyer, Gary Main, Nick Morgan, Preston Nibaur, Keri Poeckes – Wells Enterprises, Inc.; Veronica Guzman, Wayne State College; Victoria Halloran, SIMPCO; Justin Huffman, Long Lines; Jenny Joaquin and Ashley Powell, Gelita; Damon Magstadt, Premier Bankcard; Sara Matthews and Tyler Tigges, Great West Casualty; Teresa McElroy, WITCC; Brenda Meyer, NW Arkansas Community College; Deborah Moore and Billy Vogt, Goodwill of the Great Plains: Leticia O’Kane , Great Southern Bank; Paula Parmelee, Foot and Ankle Associates of Siouxland; Heidi Reinking, Siouxland Chamber of Commerce; Pat Rosacker, Central Bank; Krista Roscovius, D2 Worldwide; Stacey Selk, Unity Point St Luke’s; Bre Willems, Target; Leo Woods, KCAU Nexstar Media.

If you are searching for your passion and how to make a positive difference, reach out to info@leadershipsiouxland.org  or contact the Executive Director at 712-898-8594.  Applications are being accepted now through August 31, 2021; but class size is limited so apply now.  Program cost is $675 per participant, with limited scholarships available.  The 2021 – 2022 class is scheduled to be in-person sessions.
