Pecans!: born in 2009 from a HEROyouth marketing assignment, is revered not only for its quality of taste, but for its business model. This project was started by youth to benefit youth however HERO was not fortunate to receive youth program funding this year. In the future, we look forward to having youth back working with the Pecans! line. Pecans! is a sustainable small business created from Alabama pecans. Utilizing home grown ingredients to forge its pecan butter, sugared pecans and pecan brittle, it is a must taste in the South.
Kelley Whatley is the Pecans! Production Manager. She is busy growning the line with wholesale accounts and selling at area farmer's markets. She is truly an inspiration to the entire Greensboro community!
