The secret ingredient
What makes Holly Springs Economic Development successful?
"It’s more than just the efforts that we’ve highlighted throughout the week," said Irena Krstanovic, Economic Development Director. "There’s something special and intangible that people notice about our community – our secret ingredient to our recipe for success, if you will. It’s something you can’t quite put your finger on, or box in with words, or contain in a picture frame.
"What makes economic development in Holly Springs is our community itself – the talent in our community and the compassion in our community," she said. "Inside the Holly Springs Economic Development Department and inside our business community, we’re encouraging each other and, beyond that, we’re rolling up our sleeves and helping each other build something unlike anything else."
