In August 1969, Phil Rhodes Sr. started a business selling, renting, and servicing commercial and residential water softeners, reverse osmosis systems, and other water devices to handle most water problems.

Today, 48 years later, the business—Futuramic’s Clean Water Center—is going strong and continues to grow and evolve by serving new markets and supplying customers with the latest technology.

“We believe in constantly adjusting to new ideas and keeping up on new equipment,” Rhodes says. “Today’s consumers are very knowledgeable, and when they have a question, we need to have the answers for them.”

In addition to water treatment, Futuramic’s Clean Water Center also furnishes water dispensing systems for retail grocers and others largely in the Midwest within a 150-mile radius of Omaha — but has new and longtime customers as far away as St. Louis and eastern Iowa.

“We are a family business with very dedicated employees and family members,” Rhodes says. “We also have great customers, some of whom have been with us most of our 48 years.”

Despite changes and advancements in regulations and technology, at its core, EverGreen Capital Management continues to thrive because of the personal relationships nourished over the past 28 years.

Founder Michael Green started EverGreen Capital Management in 1989 following a successful career in banking. As a commercial loan officer, he came to admire his customers who owned their own businesses–which proved to be the genesis for him to start his own business.

The company provides private wealth management advice for people and small businesses. Its primary clientele consists of retirees and people who are planning to retire in the next 5-15 years.

“I believe the most important factor for our success has been the consistent service to our clients,” Green says. “We work very hard to understand their needs and wants. Money is just a tool to help them attain the goals for their lives. We focus on their goals.

“Statistics say there are 10,000 people retiring every day and we are living longer than ever before. That’s a great opportunity.”

Succeeding in the printing business means staying on top of—and right ahead of—the latest trends and innovations. Design Four President and Co-Owner Mindy Chesnut says they continually strive to bring unique products and services to their roster of offerings.

“We have people who have been customers for years who will notice something displayed on our counter and say, ‘I didn’t know you guys did this!’ We’re not afraid to try new materials and be innovative.”

Design Four is in its 27th year of operation— an impressive feat in an ever-changing industry. Chesnut attributes part of their success to their willingness to try new things. “We welcome odd requests,” she says, adding that they boast quick turnarounds and impressive accuracy rates. Chesnut and husband Nic purchased Design Four three years ago.

They stand out because they have the capability to print just about anything—yard signs, metal signs, decals, banners, magnets, static clings, and vinyl graphics as well as being able to route custom shapes in wood, metal, or plastic. If a customer can imagine it, it’s likely Design Four can make it.

Interaction with horses can bolster empathy and cognitive abilities in children, and there is no denying the appeal horses have to kids and adults. For nearly 20 years, American Legacy Complex has offered children the opportunity to interact with horses in a positive environment.

Owner Dorothy Turley attributes this success to their youth programs. “We give city kids the opportunity to learn about horses,” she says.
