Share the Love Stories

At Locals Love Us, we’re on a mission to find and celebrate the best of the best in Temple-Belton. YOU – the voter – help us achieve this by telling us about your favorite, go-to businesses!

When your favorite businesses win, we get the chance to work with them by featuring them in our printed guides and on our website. Only winner have the opportunity to place ads in our guides, and our website offers them a winner page, where we highlight their products/services, testimonials, and information!

This voting and sharing process goes far beyond counting votes and sharing the results – we also get to learn about how the businesses are connecting and helping the community!


Share the Love Stories feature businesses and their efforts to help make Temple-Belton a great place to live and work. From annual fundraisers, to stepping up in times of need and donating goods/services, these short stories are a way to thank businesses for sharing the love with the community that supports them.

Here are a few examples of how local best businesses give back:

H-E-B Foods

Most Texans know that H-E-B is a strong supporter of Education and Hunger Relief, but they may not know the other pillars of our community support: military appreciation, diversity initiatives, environmental stewardship, and disaster relief.  From the beginning days of COVID-19 and the Shelter-In-Place orders, H-E-B had a plan in place to assist our medical professionals and staff.  It was an honor to be a part of the team that delivered pallets of our Meal Simple Simply Heat Meals (350 microwaveable meals per pallet) each week for 4 weeks to each of our Waco hospitals and the Family Health Clinic.  For National Nurses Appreciation Week, we delivered fresh bouquets and potted plants to the area hospitals departments to brighten everyone’s shift.

Omega Builders

As a home builder in Central Texas for over 50 years, Omega understands the value of not only building a high-quality affordable home but living in, working in, supporting, and growing a community everyone is proud to call home.

As we’ve grown into new regions, we’ve kept our offices local, our teams local, and our partners local – we understand the impact local businesses have on the community and what it means to be local.

All of our stories can be found online:

We love learning about the amazing businesses in Temple-Belton and the love they show their community, so don’t forget to VOTE for your favorites so we can feature them in a Share the Love Story!
