Swiss is little more than a "wide spot" on Missouri Highway 19. Swiss is located roughly 12 miles south of Hermann. Hermann is a regional tourist attraction and supplies many of Swiss' visitors.
The leading employer in Swiss is Swiss Meat & Sausage Company. Founded in 1969, the company claims to employ about one dozen full-time workers and eight part-time workers. Swiss Meats has won many awards for its sausages and has been featured on The Food Network. Swiss also operates a catalogue and mail-order business.
The only other public destination in Swiss is the Silver Dollar Restaurant & Lounge.
