“It has been an absolute honor to get to know and work with so many people in our community through my business relationships,” Suzanne says. “I am so excited for the next chapter in real estate development and Scoop of Heaven Homemade Ice Cream with my life and business partner Bill McDaniels of the McDaniels Auto Group. Bill has been so successful and is such a generous philanthropist, our community is a better place because of his efforts. The quality of the ice cream product that we have developed is like nothing that Columbia has seen, and we know it will be successful. We hope to open multiple locations throughout South Carolina.”

Suzanne is inspired daily to continue their work partnering with Lexington Medical Center Foundation with the McDaniels-Pucci Cancer Fund, which provides cancer patients in our community with the resources they need to receive the best care throughout their cancer treatment. She hopes to leave a lasting impact for years to come.
