Speaking on Business: JulieAnn Caramels
JulieAnn Caramels provides handmade caramels, designed to be melt in your mouth delicious.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
Rowena Montoya never intended to start her own business. With a recipe she learned from her aunt, she started making caramels to attract people to her husband’s booth at trade shows, and people started asking where he was getting such fabulous candy. So, Rowena started experimenting and came up with a caramel everyone loved and launched JulieAnn Caramels.
JulieAnn Caramels provides handmade caramels, designed to be melt in your mouth delicious. Rowena has created over 40 flavors of caramels including the traditional butter caramel, sea salt, peanut butter, almond, caramel apple, cinnamon and maple bacon. She has won national awards for her caramels and will be entering JulieAnn Caramels in the Specialty Food Show in San Francisco early next year, where she’ll compete with major players.
One of the secrets to her delicious caramels is using only the best ingredients, like Darigold butter and real cream, as well as drying and hand grinding the salt used for the caramels. JulieAnn Caramels have become a favorite gift item, and while she has established her packages, Rowena’s favorite request with gift baskets is to ask for a dollar amount so she can create the perfect package.
Purchase caramels in local retailers, like Harmons, and at www.julieanncaramels.com.
The Speaking on Business program is now in its twentieth year.
For Zions Bank, I’m Chris Redgrave, speaking on business.
