Zolli Candy | 2019 Inc. 5000 rank No. 635 | Three-year growth 696% | 2018 revenue $2.2M
The idea for Zolli Candy’s sugar-free treats came about in 2012 when then-7-year-old Alina Morse was warned by her dad that the sugary lollipop offered to her at her parents’ bank would rot her teeth. Alongside her parents, Morse then started developing recipes for sugar-free candy. The following year, her company was official and Morse became CEO. After starting with lollipops, the company now offers an array of goodies, including taffy and hard candies. The Commerce Township, Michigan-based company sells its products in major retailers such as Amazon, Kroger, Target, Walmart, Whole Foods, and Walgreens. It booked $2.2 million in 2018 sales.
