In honor of National Candy Month, we recently sat down with our Souderton Retail Store Manager, Emma Hodgson, to ask her some questions about our retail store and her experience with Asher’s.
Emma first started working at Asher’s, October 31, 1998. While she didn’t dress up for Halloween, she definitely might have had a touch of black nail polish and sparkles in her hair from a party the night before. Emma remembers thinking on her first day “I get to work with candy all day long!” Coming from the insurance industry, it was quite a welcome change. While guests are not allowed on the factory floor, a 100’ viewing corridor offers a birds-eye view of candy moving along the belt and passing through a constant flow of chocolate. One can also come and enjoy a self-guided multi-media tour explaining the process of making our delicious treats.
