Describe your business.

Why choose Black Tie Caramel from others? Once it hits your taste buds, the initial sweet flavor of the vanilla, followed by the savory sea salt, gives each piece a wonderful balance of sweet and salty. Each order is made fresh and handled separately; the caramels are slow-cooked in small batches – producing an unforgettable rich creamy color, flavor and texture – then wrapped in our eco-friendly, unbleached parchment paper and packaged in a choice of options. Our famous reusable Mason gift jars – one of our specialty favor designs – are perfect for weddings, parties, showers, etc., or in bulk. Each order can be personalized with our custom tags, available in a wide array of colors.

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?

I have been self-employed since I was 19 years old. My husband of 33 years and I have owned several business, including a residential painting business, Quiznos, and a private coffee house. I am a true entrepreneurial spirit. I love being self-employed and the gratification that comes from owning my own business.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

My three beautiful children, my husband of 33 years, and our five beautiful grandbabies make me so proud.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

I love Crepe Town Café in Cameron Park – the crepes are to die for!

If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?     

I would love to meet a pioneer woman. I feel like they had the hardest job in the world – they worked hard and focused on family, but managed to enjoy life through all of their trials.

And finally, customer service is…?

Customer service is number one in any business. Each customer should be treated with appreciation and respect. A happy customer equals growth.
