Faces of Omaha is an annual sponsored publication that introduces a variety of “faces,” local industry leaders and experts, to the community. This exclusive publication was carefully cultivated​,​ so only one person and company per business category is invited to participate.

In the publishing industry, this sort of publication is known as “native advertising.” Native advertising is a unique form of sponsored content produced by editorial staff in conjunction with advertisers. The end result is an enjoyable book that has value to both the readers and advertisers.

Everyone featured in the book is truly the “face” of their field. Our sales team spent considerable time cultivating this list.

The following pages introduce more than 100 people and companies, the leaders in their respective areas of expertise, who stand ready to serve their community.

Those with a sweet tooth already know that lunch or dinner at Wheatfield’s should always include dessert. The toughest challenge will be deciding what to order. 

According to Ron Popp, who owns and operates Wheatfield’s with wife Ruth Ann and son Andrew, Strawberry Wedding Cake is the most popular selection. “Most wedding cakes are dry because they’re made more for looks and structure rather than eating,” Ron says. “We figured out how to make a moist, creamy-tasting white wedding cake with a whipped-cream-based frosting.”

Cinnamon rolls are another popular choice, as are “favorite brownies.” If someone feels indecisive, Ron suggests the temptation tray: “We take all the bars that we make from scratch and cut them into bite-size pieces.” 

Among the take-home options available are homemade candies crafted by Andrew: fudge, divinity, peanut butter balls, and caramel corn, among others. Andrew’s talent for making candy comes naturally, according to Ruth Ann. She explains, “My grandfather was a candy maker, and I think it’s cool that Andrew also has a knack for it.”
