Congressman Pete Olson toured the LoveHandle headquarters today and met CEO Mike Watts as part of an initiative to speak with Texas District 22 entrepreneurs. During the visit Congressman Olson presented Watts with a proclamation for being an economic driver and job creator in Rosharon.
“The LoveHandle team was excited to be able to meet with our Congressman and we appreciate him taking the time to come to our facility,” stated Mike Watts, CEO of LoveHandle. “We also appreciate his desire to help entrepreneurs within his district and within the United States.”
During the visit Congressman Olson was able to see the production facility, meet the team of 30 plus employees as well as sit down with Watts, his father Dave, and son Ethan to see three generations of entrepreneurship in the Watts’ family.
“It’s always great to meet people who not only want to live the American dream but are actively seeking it out and instilling it in their families,” Congressman Olson said. “The Watts family is a great example of striving for something more and there’s no better place to do that than Texas. I will continue to work at the federal level to cut red tape and provide a strong environment for entrepreneurs to succeed.”
