ACEDC Member Completes Goldman Sachs Small Business Program

Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) member Olivia's Crouton Company's CEO Francie Williams Caccavo recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program. She was one of only 3 graduates from Vermont. The Babson Cohort of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a national program to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital, and business support services.

Olivia’s Crouton Company is planning a major expansion into a new facility which will allow for 10 times its current capacity over the next 5 years. Olivia’s plans to double its workforce over the next 3 years. This move will allow Olivia’s to satisfy the unmet demand for their croutons in some food service and private label markets while at the same time supporting their own branded products.
