Why I Live Here

Norman Love
The Ritz-Carlton brought me to southwest Florida in 1991 as pastry chef of its Naples resort. I remained based in southwest Florida, living in Fort Myers, during my 13 years as the company’s corporate pastry chef. In 2001, I left the corporate world in favor of a life with less travel and more time with my family, entered into private enterprise and founded Norman Love Confections. I decided to stay in area and selected a location in Fort Myers to be near the Southwest Florida International Airport.

The natural tropical beauty of southwest Florida fits my casual lifestyle. The marine life. Boating with the family. Playing hockey with my friends.

With a good infrastructure and the enthusiastic support of the community, the Fort Myers business environment has been extremely favorable. As I am approaching the 10-year anniversary of Norman Love Confections, I’m actively exploring several opportunities to expand throughout the region.

Fort Myers is the perfect place to raise my children and grow my business. My career brought me to Fort Myers ... the lifestyle will keep me here.
