She says opening up her own business was challenging, but thanks her parents for all their help.

She also says her goal is to have every customer leave with a smile on their face.

“I think just like a lot of people smiling and being happy and interacting with a lot of different people and being more open with people as well. I just hope to offer them a lot of good customer service and when they come in here, just feel like a kid in a candy store all over again,” said Richmond.

You can catch the Peppermint Addie & CO. grand opening tomorrow at 112 E. Baltimore Street in Downtown Jackson.
