Marie's Owner Recognized at RCI Convention
June 2017

Marie's owner Jay King was recently honored at the Retail Confectioners International (RCI) Annual Convention and Industry Expo. Jay was recognized on stage at the Anniversary Gala for being one of the many past presidents of RCI.

Jay and Kathy King, as well as Shannon King and Rebecca (King) Craig also attended the RCI convention, which was hosted in Chicago June 12-16. The theme of the convention this year centered around the celebration of RCI's 100th year anniversary.

At the convention, the King family benefited from educational sessions about food safety, social media, and telling your story as a business. There were some exciting new products at the Expo to use for upcoming holidays. They also enjoyed tours of candy stores, candy factories (including one of Marie's suppliers, Albanese), and two chocolate factories.

They look forward to attending next year to connect with fellow candy-makers and continue to stay on the cutting edge of industry knowledge.
