    Talking Over Toffee ft Doug Simons

    Talking Over Toffee ft Doug Simons

    Doug Simons represents the third-generation of Enstrom’s Colorado-based, family-owned business. Having worked part time at Enstrom’s while attending Mesa College in the mid 70’s, Simons first exposure to the industry was mucking-out butter fat that had been tracked into the freezers. He later married Jamee Enstrom and joined the business full time in 1979. Doug spent his formative years in the confectionery industry learning the art of candy making under the watchful tutelage of his father-in-law, Emil Enstrom and company founder, Chet Enstrom. 

    He then worked his way through every aspect of the business, was named president of the company in 1986 and purchased the business in 1993.  Simons was also the first in the family to have any formal confectionery training attending the Retail Confectioners International (RCI)’s Candy School in 1982.

    Simons is credited with turning a “Mom and Pop” business into a competitive, high-quality producer of confections.  Under his leadership, two plant expansions have been constructed and he has brought innovation through technological advancements to both mail-order and manufacturing.  His quest for innovation eventually lead to the development of cutting-edge machinery to allow for continuous-production of Enstrom’s premiere product, World-Famous Almond Toffee.

    The World Is Yours ft Kate Caldecourt

    An Irish girl living in Colorado, Kate moved for work and stayed for love. Two options were presented to her - Hong Kong or Colorado. She chose Colorado and made one of the best decisions of my life. She traveled a lot for work managing global strategic planning processes across EMEA, APAC and the Americas. Travel and seeing new cultures is one of her greatest passions. Kate and her husband were lucky enough to fulfill a lifelong dream and got to travel the world together for a year. 

    She comes from a line of entrepreneurs and started her own business in 2018 called "The Strategy Architect". Growing up in the family business she learned at a young age the highs and lows of owning your own business and wanted to dedicate her time to helping other organizations thrive both in the for-profit and not-for profit sectors.
