Linking Indy Women Presents: Making Life Delicious!

GUEST SPEAKER: Carrie Abbott, CEO of Newfangled Confections and The Best Chocolate In Town

Carrie transformed a culinary mishap and turned it into a delectable national brand. Frittle, the fudge-like brittle, a soft, crispy peanut brittle confection, was born when the then caterer developed the recipe for a wedding reception. The throwback candy went from a local artisan treat in 2012 to a national feature as a recurring QVC on-air guest, Amazon, and large shelves of retailers.

After building a successful business with Newfangled Confections, Carrie scaled and diversified her product offering with the acquisition of a craft chocolatier company, The Best Chocolate in Town. This purchase allowed her to not only bolster her current confectionery inventory but also add new lines of business which resulted in company growth in the midst of a pandemic.

Carrie believes in empowering her team. By giving them a voice and creative freedoms, they grow as professionals while the company enjoys growth through innovation and fresh ideas

Join us as we hear Carrie’s inspiring journey from small batch to big box while being dedicated to creating the highest quality confections and a joyful place to work!
