Kandi Foster, Marathon


Kandios Ice Cream & Deli
5187 Overseas Hwy, Ocean Side
"I am born and raised in Florida, learned to swim in Key West when I was 6, but haven't been back to the Keys since I was 12; I was living in North Florida.
I had been working for a bank for 20 years when they laid me off.
I bought a house boat and was going to vacation here, but after being laid off I came over the summer, permanently. I noticed there wasn't an ice cream shop in Marathon, so I opened one. I opened my first shop down across from the airport and 2 years later I moved here to this strip center. I love the boss, it is all about me, it is a fun business and everyone leaves with a smile.
I had always wanted to own my own business and I thought I wanted to do donuts, but I am not a morning person. This is my first time in business and I did it when I was 50! It is never too late; don't ever give up on your dreams!
The bank did me a favor and fired me; now I get to live in Paradise and sell ice cream. I don't think it gets any better!"
