Herm Rowland Reveals His Secrets to Sweet Success

Jelly_Belly_LogoIf you subscribe to SCORE ExpertANSWERS, then you saw that Herm Rowland of Jelly Belly Candy Co. is this month’s featured expert.  Herm helped grow his grandfather’s candy business from a small, family operation to an industry giant.

Why do you believe in the value of mentoring?
Herm_RowlandI would recommend a SCORE volunteer for someone who is ready to listen and take advice from a person who has run a small business similar to yours in tough times. A SCORE volunteer helped our business, and he helped me personally. He did costing and developed an internal financial spreadsheet to show us where we were financially. He also helped us plan an expansion and secure a loan, and showed how we could increase sales through innovative ideas. He was the greatest!
