Marisa Wu started Salty Road in 2011 as a kind of retro locavore candy company whose products you’d find at retailers with names containing Brooklyn, but the business has now grown to include outlets across the country, and it’s time to make the taffy. Wu and partner Carolyn Walsh found themselves unable to wrap a gazillion pieces of salty caramel and peanut flavors by hand, so the confectioners set sights on a Model K taffy plug cutter and wrapping machine. Salty Road is about to open its Brooklyn “factory,” and they’re just looking for a bit of help. If you have a sweet tooth, the pitch is straight ahead.
