Business Visit | Chef's Shoppe Gourmet Kitchen Store
--
Popping into our second business visit of the year, CEO was thrilled to tour Chef’s Shoppe with owners, Nancy and Scott Schneider. Since 2006, the Schneiders have been establishing their store as a staple in the Edwardsville CEO community. They shared all of the details of their story with our students. A few highlights:
--
• Owning your own business is HARD WORK. It is wonderful to be your own boss, but be prepared to put in a lot of time and effort.
• Never assume you know everything. Continually seek advice from anyone you can, both in and outside of your field.
• In any business, all of the little things matter most.
• Honesty and ethics is everything.
• If you live in a community, be a part of that community. Volunteer, work, shop in your backyard and help YOUR community thrive.

Honest, hard working, kind. Nancy and Scott are business owners that practice what they preach. As program investors and outstanding community members, they serve as fantastic role models for our young entrepreneurs. Plus...they make (in our humble opinions) the world's BEST gourmet popcorn.
