    We have one bar/restaurant which serves excellent hamburgers, and is patronized heavily. The town seems incapable of supporting very many variety or retail stores, but there is one independently owned floral shop, a family owned grocery store, one convenience store, and several automotive shops. It is easy to get your car/truck fixed quickly in this town. All local business owners and employees are very friendly and good at what they do - service is excellent and timely.

    It is difficult to get some food items in Wauneta, such as fresh herbs and some vegetables, due to the lack of demand. They spoil before they are sold. Therefore, I often travel about 20-45 minutes to get these things at a reasonable price. However, we do have a printing and graphic design company in town that supplies many of our promotion needs for various businesses and events. This is a great thing for the town since it mean much less outsourcing. Additionally, the Roller Mill in town is the last remaining privately-owned roller mill in the state of Nebraska. They provide a wide range of flours, cereal grains, and baked goods bases such as pancake mixes and cake mixes. Many businesses around the state get their flour from Wauneta Roller Mills because of the high quality of the flour.
    The job market in Wauneta consists mostly of agricultural and automotive jobs. The main employers are the Chevy dealership in town, Wauneta Co-op Oil Company, and Frenchman Valley Co-op. A lot of people truck for a living, whether it's cattle or grain. Many people work for the school, but the pay is not fantastic, and, of course, they are out of employment in the summer months. A few other job opportunities include the Postal Service, grocery store, a handful of small businesses, and the one convenience store in town. The largest source of employment comes from the surrounding agricultural community. It is a very rural area, surrounded by farm and pasture ground where people raise their crops and cattle.
