With Show of Hands happening on Wednesday, we’ve been taking a look at the participants for this session.
It’s special because it’s four small businesses that have a few plans up their sleeves for the money. It’s one of the top lunch locations for people in Downtown Wheeling and known throughout our area by hot dog lovers as well. Tito’s Sloppy Doggs has been a staple in our community for 4 and a half years, and is only looking to get better, “I can take that, however much money they give, and I can put it to something that’s going to help Wheeling,” said Tito’s owner, Christopher Burress.
But how are they going to help bring more visitors to the Friendly City, Do the vendor shows at the Waterfront, and bring the people from where ever, like from Ohio and P.A., down to Wheeling,” Burress said.
Burress added that Show of Hands is an important part of our area because it’s strictly to help the community, “It gets people where they’re not just going to get a loan. Or they’re not, “Hey, I need $5,000.” It’s a way for mass people to help other people.”
Burress said if Tito’s is voted victorious on Wednesday, he’s planning to take the winnings and buy a camper to convert it into a food truck, and take part in events throughout our area. As for why the audience should pick them, “I’m a nice guy, just give me money.”

Show of Hands is taking place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Artisan Center. Tuesday, Nick will be taking a look at another small business taking part in the event.
