About this event

John Zeno Louizes is building a candy dynasty in Daytona Beach

Established in 1948, Zeno's Boardwalk Sweet Shop is now in its third generation of family ownership, management, and operations. Third-generation owner, John Zeno Louizes followed in the footsteps of his father, Zeno, and his great-uncle, Thomas Nougaras, and took over the Daytona Beach, Fla.-based company in 2003.

Since taking over in 2003, John has transformed the family business from a local icon in Daytona Beach to the world's largest manufacturer of taffy. He has recently scaled candy production by 1,000% with dedicated manufacturing facilities, as well as expanded global distribution and established new retail channels.

Join us to learn about the focused journey of this extraordinary entrepreneur. Hear his vision for making the best candy in the world and having a lot of fun in doing so right here in our community! You'll network with innovators, influencers and professionals from our community. Enjoy exquisite appetizers crafted by La's Bistro. Be inspired by John's family story and participate in an interactive Q&A. This will be a truly exceptional atmosphere with friends, both old and new.
