16-year-old Michigan girl runs fast-growing candy business
What were you doing when you were 16? I had just gotten my license and was driving my own car, a car that I bought with my own money. I was playing soccer, checking the girls and wondering what I would do on the weekends. Oh yeah, there was also something called school.
There is a 16 year old girl who spends her time at the White House on TV shows like “Dr. Oz”, “Good Morning America”, “Shark Tank” and hanging out at the red carpet premiere “Boss Baby. ” At New York.
Here she is on “Good Morning America” with other young entrepreneurs:
Her name is Alina Morse and she lives with her family in Walled Lake Michigan. She is CEO of ZolliCandy, a company she started with her father when she was just nine years old. She and her dad were looking for healthier candies for you. She ended up with candies that don’t contain a lot of allergens than others and are sugar free.
ZolliCandy not only offers Zollipops, but also Zolli Drops, Zaffi Taffy, Zolli Caramelz, Zolli Gummeez. According to a report from MLive, there is a rumor that peanut butter cups are on the way.
According to their Facebook page:
“Zollipops® are the“ Clean Teeth Pops ™ “. That help protect your teeth from cavities. A dentist favorite and loved by children !!… Zollipops® are no ordinary suckers, they are supercharged with erythritol, stevia and other natural smile-friendly products Ingredients Zollipops® are the “After You Eat Treat ™” Enjoy one after every meal or sweet snack How do Zollipops® work? ZP challenge to find out. Test the pH in your mouth before and after a Zollipops®, and see the pH change. Why do we care about pH? pH is a key factor in oral health. We remember all from an early experience on a child, when one of our baby teeth was left in a glass of soda overnight. The tooth, being composed of calcium, dissolved as acid breaks down calcium up that the pH is neutral Zollipops helps restore a healthy pH level in n our mouth “
The MLive article reports that this young girl’s business had a turnover of $ 6 million in 2018. It was $ 6 million when she was 14. In fact, they ranked 1110th on the Inc. 5000 list, in growing companies. They currently rank 13th among Michigan companies, growing 437% from 2017 to 2020.
To think I was only thinking about football, my car, girls and school when I should have started building a multi-million dollar business.
Congratulations to this young girl, I hope everything will work out.
