Progress: Mattson captains confectionary
Jessica Mattson dipped into the sweet world of chocolatiers as a part-time worker more than three years ago.
With a degree in elementary education, Mattson taught for Under the Rainbow in Red Wing when she began working at Red Wing Confectionery.
“It was a fun job on the side,” she said.
Now, as full-time, hands-on captain of the confectionery team, she manages the storefront operations as well as the candy-making process in the “back of the shop.”
