Oregonian to run Jelly Belly company for a day

Bend, Ore., resident Lisa Calorino has won the national Be the Jelly Belly Big Bean sweepstakes, Jelly Belly Candy Co. has announced. The online contest gave contestants an inside look at the workings of a candy plant and tested their ability to handle the pressure of running a candy company.
Calorino and her family will travel to Fairfield, Calif., where she will join fourth-generation candy man and company chairman Herman Rowland Sr., for an action-packed day at the helm of the well-known jelly bean manufacturer.
In addition to overseeing operations at the company for a day, Calorino will received a “paycheck” bonus prize of $10,000, hotel accommodations in San Francisco and a rental car to transport the “Big Bean” around town while she serves as Jelly Belly’s acting president.
“What a hoot!” Calorino exlaimed. “It is like a wonderful reward to visit the Jelly Belly factory during our never ending rollercoaster of life’s journey. How exciting.” Both her husband, Clark, and son, Eulind, will accompany Calorino during the executive adventure.
Upon arriving at Jelly Belly, Calorino will inspect the factory, taste new flavors in development, work on promotional concepts at the executive offices and generally experience life at the top. Calorino also will get a unique chance to represent Jelly Belly at a local charity, proving that running a company is as much about giving as it is about receiving.
Updates on Calorino’s day at Jelly Belly will be posted to
