Why we’re thrilled to call Fond du Lac home
We’re proud to be headquartered in Fond du Lac, a thriving, mid-sized city nestled against the shores of Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin’s largest inland lake. Fond du Lac’s blend of bustling business and pristine nature gives the city’s 43,000-plus residents plenty to gush over. A lower cost of living, progressive school system and low crime rate also make Fond du Lac a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Outside of a lively art center, aquatic center and 30 new soccer fields, Lake Winnebago remains the center of activity. In the summer, residents rush to its waters to fish, boat and swim under the warm sun. Months later, they return to go ice skating and ice fishing. And if you’re the outdoorsy type, there’s also plenty of camping and snowmobiling to be had.
The economic climate of Fond du Lac owes its strength to its sizeable and diverse base of business and industry. From cheese-making to outboard motor manufacturing, dozens of industries have flocked to the city, contributing to the prosperity and personality of the community.
One of the most exciting aspects of Fond du Lac is our festivals
. Now attracting more than 100,000 visitors a year, the city’s renowned Walleye Weekend lays claim to Wisconsin’s second-largest festival. This three-day fish fest features a weekend filled with sporting events, music acts from across the nation, angling tournaments and, of course, plenty of delicious food.
