Husband and wife David and Nancy originally worked in the retail industry for several years. Along the way, they also owned a catering business for ten years. After David accepted a job managing the Red Apple Inn Resort, he continued to prepare toffee to give away on special occasions. At the urging of the Inn's owners, they began selling the toffee to local gift shops in Arkansas. As popularity for the candy grew, they soon took their toffee to gift markets in Dallas, Atlanta, New York, and Chicago. They now ship to gift shops in over 40 states and continue to expand every year.
