Ocho Candy (3)
Why isn't anybody making great tasting organic candy bars? That was the question puzzling Denis Ring (founder). Being a natural food expert, he was certain it was just a matter of time before a delicious, organic, all-American candy bar would hit stores. However, years passed and nothing happened. This is when Denis took matters into his own hands and started creating samples. Denis wanted some honest feedback, so he brought these early samples to his friend and entrepreneur, Scott Kucirek. Scott was sold after his first bite and he joined Ocho. When selecting a location for its factory, the team couldn’t resist the lure of West Oakland. Like Ocho Candy, it was up-and-coming and ready to shine. And it’s where Ocho continues finding new ways to make candy more delicious and surprising.
