John Zeno Louizes is a third generation candymaker and the Head Honcho at Zeno’s Boardwalk Sweet Shop.
He took over the family business in 2003 and has grown it to include four candy retail shops and three ice cream shops. The brick-and-mortar stores are in Florida, but a bustling online candy store means the confections are available nationwide.
John, who began working at the store when he was 11, says, “My goal is to make sure we do the best candy making in the world and have fun doing so.” John and I chat about the candy business and why candy and ice cream stores are great places for grandparents and grandchildren to make sweet memories.
Be sure to visit the store’s website to watch videos of John and his crew making candy and ice cream.
