My name is Donald Pierre and I have a small candy company that I`ve been trying to get jump started for the past 5 years. I have several problems and questions I`m hoping some one could point me in the right direction. The type of candy I specialize in are called "Pralines". This candy are made with sugar, pecans, and little bit extra. :-) I make 4 different flavors to choose from with crushed or whole pecans. I`ve had the opportunity of providing these items for clients from parties, weddings, or just the average snacker.
The problems I`m having ranges from producing a mass quantities, getting customers, keeping repeat customers, licensing(because the state of GA where I live doesn`t allow producing food products from home), just to name a few. Everyone who`s sampled and purchased my products have been pleased to say the least. Funding has also been a issue.
I know I have a great product that the masses would love, but I`m having trouble of keeping them interested.
Any suggestions? Please help.
