Norman Love Confections to give away $10,000 for 10th anniversary
FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 15, 2011) – In 2001, Norman and Mary Love opened Norman Love Confections in a small, 700-square-foot facility off Daniels Parkway to be near the Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers.
Over the past 10 years, the airport has moved, the NLC Salon relocated into a 6,000-square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and retail store and a second location, in Naples, was added. The operation has grown from three employees to 38 professionals who produce chocolates and pastries for Southwest Florida and the nation.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 8, 2011) – The Lee County Board of County Commissioners marked Norman Love Confections’ 10th anniversary by passing a resolution to honor the company recognizing Norman and Mary Love’s success, for bringing positive attention and notoriety to Lee County and for their philanthropic generosity.
