New mall poster highlights businesses mygooi loves.

Fremont's gooiest businesses

Fremont, Neb., is a gooi city filled with gooi businesses, according to mygooi CEO Paul N. Greenwood.

"Michelle Kaiser won our first gooikaraoke competition, and we loved it,” he said. “So many of its businesses exemplify the gooi concept.” Kaiser owns Fremont's Alotta Brownies Bakery, named one of the top 10 bakeries in the United States for baked dessert bars and brownies by All-American Cooking magazine.

mygooi has named 10 additional Fremont businesses as supergooi, and photographer Vance Wagener created a poster highlighting them, which is displayed in the Fremont Mall.

“There are many more businesses we could have chosen,” said Greenwood.

The featured businesses were selected based on professionalism, the experience and service they offer their customers and the uniqueness of their offerings. “Some are hidden gems and almost all are inventive in their philosophy of customer service,” said Greenwood.
