Take a dash of upstate New York, toss in a dash of Georgia, add a little bit of crazy and a lot of determination and you have Kimberly Hadlock in a nutshell. Crack it open and what you find is far more interesting than the sum of her parts. When you add that together with her business background, photography, eclectic friends, sense of adventure, mixologist experience, love of family, and generosity, you have a strong person willing to take on anything tossed her way.
In February 2012, Kimberly turned having fun making gifts for friends into having fun making the world a sweeter place. She opened her Etsy shop with a few lollipop flavors, handed out samples, and built her little hobby into a full-time, well-respected business in a time when many were closing their doors. Her use of natural, preferably locally sourced ingredients is just one example of her expectation of excellence. Kimberly has handled everything from single orders to large corporate events and done them all well.
Sharing the “kid” in her with others has served everyone well. Ideas have been shared, Kimberly has listened, new flavors have been created. She has created new flavors on her own. Teamwork is important, and so is making a final decision. Kimberly does both.
