Revitalizing a small town using fudge is what Julie Hubbard did for Lacon, Illinois. Granted she didn't save the world or anything super huge like that but when she moved from the Chicago Suburbs to a small town in North Central Illinois, she really shook things up, in a good way.

Lacon's population is just under 2000 people and like many small towns in America, it has its struggles. Julie was not about to take no for an answer and over the past 7 years has been an instrumental player in helping to keep the economy strong in the little town.

Julie's Corner Store had tripled in size since its initial opening and has become a destination for visitors in what is otherwise just a sleepy river town. She had played her part and has help to bring numerous new businesses into our downtown area and in general just makes it a really great place to live. Aside from the store you can find her serving on a number of committees all dedicated to helping the area grow stronger.
