Young professionals from all over swarmed to Coffee District in Delray Beach to see founder and CEO Jeff Rubin of It’Sugar speak. The speaker series hosted by the Young Professionals Association of Delray (YPAD) is just one in an assortment of events put on each month by the group in order to promote business networking and development among professionals 40 years and younger in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. Over 60 YPADers showed up to hear how the Delray Beach local took one store and turned it into the largest specialty candy store chain in the world. There was a lengthy question and answer portion at the conclusion where Mr. Rubin answered the aspiring young entrepreneurs’ questions which largely involved the decisions that led to his success.
