Summer Field Trips For Marie's Staff
At Marie's Candies, we strive to provide experiences to further our staff's education in the confectionery world. As a part of that mission, ten of our staff were able to attend the Retail Confectioners International Convention (RCI) in Indianapolis, Indiana in June. There, they mingled with fellow candy makers, got new product ideas, learned in educational sessions, and toured three great candy shops.
Since some staff needed to stay and man the store during the RCI convention, we offered them the opportunity in August to take a field trip to Findlay, Ohio. There they visited Dietsch Brothers Fine Chocolates and Ice Cream and the Mazza Museum: International Art from Picture Books.
It is our hope to continue to give our employees fun learning opportunities so they can continue to enjoy being a part of Maire's Candies.
