“Listening to my customers has always been a key success strategy for me. Last year when we decided to expand the footprint of The Dandelion Patch, I posted a question on our Facebook Fan Page asking where my customers thought we should “plant” our next location. My customers overwhelmingly said ‘The Village at Leesburg’,” said The Dandelion Patch President and CEO Heidi Kallett. “Now we are just a week from our ribbon-cutting event with expected attendance of over 150 people, I would tell you that my customers are not only right—but they are smart! We are thrilled with the warm response from our Loudoun County friends, fellow wedding vendors and charity partners. We see a bright future in Leesburg and are grateful to be part of it.”
“The growth in the number of destination weddings within Leesburg and Loudoun County has been phenomenal,” said Economic Development Manager Marantha Edwards. “The Dandelion Patch brings with them a long history of uncompromising quality, outstanding customer service, and a myriad of accolades from the bridal industry. We are thrilled to welcome Heidi Kallett and her team to Leesburg.”
