Oakland County, MI — Alina Morse, and Oakland County teenager, was 7 years old when she set out to find a candy that wouldn’t ruin her teeth. That was the beginning of Zolli® Candy, an all-natural, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and non-GMO candy that curbs your sweet tooth while improving oral health.
Zolli® Candy hit store shelves in 2014 when Alina was nine, and the line is now sold at over 25,000 retailers. In August 2020, Inc. Magazine named the company the nation’s Fastest Growing Private Candy Company, and now Alina has been named a finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year for the Michigan and Northwest Ohio region.
Entrepreneur of the Year is a competitive award program for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies, and the nominees are evaluated by a panel of independent judges. If Alina wins the regional award in October, she will be eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards in November.
