Over 35 years ago, I started in the candy industry working for a family-owned candy & cookie company located in the Midwest. Working my way up and through various classes of trade and parts of the United States has given me the knowledge and background needed to help grow their business. With some ownership changes and buyouts by investors, the candy stayed relatively the same. Here at Palmer Candy, a family-owned candy company, I manage Bakery, Branded Candy and the well-known Midwest Bing candy bars. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my grandkids, but also like to get in some golf every now and then.
