Tasha and William Kornegay of Apex never thought making cotton candy was the career path they were on. She works in mental health, and he is in marking; they met fifteen years ago while working in a school system. In 2013, Tasha was trying to raise funds for HIV research. She rented a cotton candy machine and took it to the Peak City Pig Fest. It was a hit. The Kornegays are vegan and their product is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, with no artificial food coloring.
