Sweet Candy Company has been a family tradition since 1892. Founded in Portland, Oregon, Leon Sweet started the famous candy company that offered high quality homemade candy that the customers loved. In 1900 Leon moved the operation from Portland to Salt Lake City, Utah, where he merged several small specialty stores into one general line manufacturing company. Over the years, Sweet’s has become more innovative and more automated. The company has increased the number of products it makes and has expanded its total marketing area.
Today, there are more than 250 Sweet’s Quality Candy items distributed internationally in bulk, bags and boxes. Sweet’s is perhaps still best known for its classic favorites: Chocolate Orange Sticks, Salt Water Taffy and Cinnamon Bears. In 1999 Sweet Candy Company built a state-of-the-art 180,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility. The new factory is located three miles south of the Salt Lake International Airport and is adjacent to Interstate-80. The new building represents Sweet’s dedication to the future production of quality candies, which the world has come to enjoy. The family and employees of Sweet Candy Company are proud of their heritage and their quality products.
