Meet Kandice Goas of Kandie’s Korn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kandice Goas.

Hi Kandice, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
When I was a child, my mother and I used to make the most delicious caramel corn. I always looked forward to it. It was one of the many memorable moments of my childhood. Fast forward to adulthood, my professional career was in Human Resources. I would bring my caramel corn in to work for holidays, so the employees could enjoy it. Everyone would just rant and rave about how delicious it was. In February 2020, after I brought my caramel corn in to work for Valentine’s Day, I went home and made the scariest decision of my life. I resigned from Corporate America. People laughed at me and thought I was insane. They couldn’t believe I left the corporate world after 27 years to start my own business. Being a single mother of three daughters, it was important for me to build something that they could be proud of. My legacy. As luck would have it, Covid paid a visit to the US and the world pretty much stopped. For me, failure was not an option. I spent endless hours on social media, marketing and doing pop-up sales. Business cards and samples were left everywhere. My brand was growing rapidly in the middle of a pandemic!

Today, I continue to hustle, day and night, to grow Kandie’s Korn, LLC and get my gourmet caramel corn in every home across the country!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
My biggest struggle was the pandemic hitting the US shortly after starting Kandie’s Korn, LLC. Due to this, many events were canceled and resources were unavailable.
