Starting my own business has always been a dream of mine. Ever since my first business management class in college I always knew that was what I wanted to do. But what kind of business was always the question in my mind. Then one day I heard the saying, “If you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life.” So I started thinking about what I love and it always came back to memories of my childhood – baking Snickerdoodles with my Granny, watching my dad decorate elaborate wedding cakes, taking a candy making class at a local cake shop with my mom. Plus, I have a major sweet tooth so I am always searching for new recipes to try and satisfy those cravings. That’s when it dawned on me that a candy shop would be the perfect outlet for me to express myself creatively and delight others at the same time. So The Fudge Shack was born.
