Milwaukee native Jacqueline Chesser had a good career with benefits working for a large insurance company, but despite her situation she said for many years she wanted to do something else with her life. One day, she was helping a friend search for an apartment in 2005 when she found the perfect storefront to realize her 15-year-long dream of opening her own business making unique, high-quality, affordable baked goods and candies.

Goody Gourmet sells 25 different flavors of popcorn and nine different types of high-quality chocolate confections in its store menu. Goody Gourmets’ regular flavored popcorn offerings include bacon, BBQ, pizza, as well as caramel and cheese with pecans, among others. Confections include Raspberry Truffles, Pecan Mega Rods, Pecan Turtles and several similar offerings. The company is getting ready to open a second location near the intersection of N. Green Bay Ave., and Mill Rd. Chesser said the new location would provide another retail location, more space for corporate headquarters, storage and allow Goody Gourmets to continue mentoring and teaching soft skills to local youth that will hopefully lead to college and better employment opportunities in the future.

There are many ways to purchase Goody Gourmet products, Chesser said. Along with walk-in sales, customers can place orders over the internet at The company also works with fundraising event organizers and deals in bulk sales.
