Jenny Fulton, co-founder of Miss Jenny’s Pickles, will share her company story and the secrets to her huge success at the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center’s monthly Entrepreneurial Journeys program on Wednesday, Feb 20.
After being laid off from their financial industry jobs, Fulton and co-founder Ashlee Furr used Fulton’s grandmother’s recipes to start making pickles, using cucumbers from a field next door to their home. Founded in 2009, Miss Jenny’s Pickles is now a household name. Its products are sold in more than 500 stores, and the company exports from its plant in Kernersville all over the world. Fulton and Furr were featured in a segment on CBS’s 60 Minutes last October.
The 5:30 p.m. event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in Room 1214 of the Moore Humanities and Research Administration Building on the UNCG campus. Due to limited seating, attendees are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. The program begins with registration and networking at 5 p.m. A Q&A session and a networking reception follow the presentation.
The venue is located at 1111 Spring Garden St. Free parking is available on Forest or Oakland streets or behind the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
Entrepreneurial Journeys provides an informal, interactive setting for community members and students to hear first-hand how businesses are created. For more information on NCEC programs, visit the website at entrepreneur.uncg.edu or call 336-256-8649.
