Brandini Toffee


During their freshman year of high school, their English teacher told Brandon Weimer and Leah Post that she was planning a class trip to Italy. Their parents liked the idea but told them that they’d have to find a way to pay for half the trip themselves. They were too young to get jobs so they decided to start their own business.   Within a couple months they paid off their trips in full, plus spending money, and in the spring of 2007 they headed for Italy.  Accomplishing their goal was such a great experience that they decided to keep the dream alive and continue making their gourmet almond toffee. They have expanded the product line to include more than just toffee.
