A dream sent by God; Heaven Sent Gourmet Popcorn and Sweets is a culmination of fantastic gourmet popcorn and melt in your mouth confections.
Well before her start as a candy maker, Jo can recall standing over the stove stirring caramel for her mother as her mother taught her how to make decadent desserts. She still uses much of what her mother taught her in her recipes today.
Jo Thomas began making turtles, and other small treats such as fudge and toffee, as a hobby. Initially, the turtles started off as gifts for friends, family, and those she worked with, however one year, Jo decided to start selling turtles to help her granddaughter with tuition (the birth of Deja's Pet Turtles). The turtles became so popular among her friends and family that people she didn’t know began to make requests for the candy.
In addition to candy making, Jo grew an interest in gourmet popcorn creations. In her home city of Milwaukee, WI there are popcorn shops which are a staple in the community, not only for taste, but for excellent customer service. With her steadily growing passion, she decided that she wanted to provide the same type of experience in Brevard County. With the combination of her skill in the kitchen, ability to manage operations, and experience in the financial sector, it seemed only fitting to begin her journey as a business owner. With Heaven Sent Gourmet Popcorn and Sweets, Jo is hoping to continue to fulfill her God given purpose.
