ESTHER PRICE CANDIES

from Esther Price's or the customers'
own recipes.
To do that will require additional
production space, for which Esther Price
Candies is in the process of obtaining approval. "We've already got plans to build
a big building with all the latest equipment," Day says. It would improve the
operational layout by organizing manufacturing, packing, refrigerated storage
and shipping into a single progression
from one area to the next. The latest addition to the manufacturing operation in
Dayton was of a kitchen furnished with
the latest equipment that centralized ad-

dition of ingredients instead of obtaining
them from several different locations.

Direct Line
Day was one of four investors who
bought Esther Price Candies in 1976.
"We bought it on her 50th anniversary,
and I've done it for 40 years this past
year," Day recalls. "My partner, Ralph
Schmidt, and myself bought the other
two partners out. Ralph passed away in
2006. We were friends from kids on up."
Although Day is now the majority
owner and has big plans for the future
of Esther Price Candies, he is not rely-

ing on himself alone to execute them.
He has been joined in the business by
three daughters who are on the board
of directors: Marketing Director Sandy
Brielmaier; Sharon McManus, who
handles retail and heads donations; and
Senior Store Manager Barb Dressman.
Their husbands - Bruce Brielmaier,
Wholesale Assistant Denny McManus
and Vice-President Doug Dressman -
are all on the board of directors. "I more
or less steer the ship - I did everything
when we started," Day remembers. "I'm
88 years old, so I'm trying to turn it over
a little bit." O
