Our Story: Small Batch Toffee
Miss Ginny began making small batch toffee over 25 years ago as gifts for family and friends… some even suggested to Miss Ginny that she should consider this as a business. But, as a stay-at-home mom with two young children, this was the farthest thought from her mind. As years passed and her children progressed through school, Miss Ginny discovered a desire to start her own business but wasn’t certain what that business should sell.
Miss Ginny and her husband, Tom, owned a cabinet and countertop business in Tallahassee, Florida, where she worked daily alongside Tom. The economy started a nosedive and greatly impacted the building construction industry in Florida. Forced to close their doors, not too many working options in this field were available.
In order to supplement their income until another avenue could be ensued, Miss Ginny made her toffee on a full-time basis, attending small church bazaars and holiday craft events, where the packaged toffee made excellent gifts for customers to share for Christmas, birthdays, etc. Business progressed, and in 2010, Miss Ginny’s English Toffee, LLC was formed in Tallahassee, FL.
“Everyone has been gifted a talent, and I believe God has blessed me with the gift of serving others. I enjoy seeing people try my toffee for the first time and the look of surprise on their faces when they realize just how good it is. I am a perfectionist, and I take pride in my product from the start of production to the end with my packaging. I strive for the outside of my packaging to be as pleasing as the inside, and I think this says a lot about who I am.”
