The first Fuzziwig's Candy Factory opened in 1995. Led by a top-notch executive management team of retail candy industry veterans, the company (Fuzziwig's Candy Factory, Inc.) grew to 20 stores by the end of 2001. Along the way, store performance beat expectations with improvements attributed to, among other things, carefully implemented and tested refinements in store design, merchandising strategies and operational systems.
Today, Fuzziwig's Candy Factory receives rave reviews from customers, mall developers and store owners alike. With its franchising program, the company is continuing to experience excellent growth and is poised to become the leading candy franchise of all time!
Thanks to an exploding candy market, Fuzziwig's Candy Factory and Sweets From Heaven are growing in leaps and bounds and we're looking for motivated, enthusiastic people to join our family of independent candy franchises.

You can't help but notice the expressions on people's faces as they walk through the doors of a Fuzziwig's Candy Factory, CANDY HQTRS, or Sweets From Heaven store. Of course, the kids beam with anticipation and excitement.
What kid wouldn't beam...
...upon stepping into a brightly lit, colorful, musical place bursting with every kind of candy imaginable? But it's the looks on the adults' faces that leave a lasting impression – a kind of nostalgic, warm, wondrous smile as though they've just bumped into a long lost, but never forgotten, childhood friend...
Know what they're thinking?
They're thinking about the corner drugstore with rows upon rows of penny candies in glass jars. They're remembering how they collected discarded soda bottles for change so they could buy a candy bar. They're reminiscing about the piece of bubble gum they got at the barbershop after their haircut or about Mom's special "candy hiding place" in the kitchen. They're remembering being at a Saturday matinee, watching a movie and munching their favorite candy...
Candy casts its spell
Like magic, candy casts its happy spell equally on young and old. And it's the magic of candy that not only makes walking into our stores so much fun, but also what makes Fuzziwig's Candy Factory, CANDY HQTRS, or Sweets From Heaven such a "sweet, fun franchise" to own.
Benefits of Franchising
Franchises offer a proven business model for new and experienced entrepreneurs to follow. This business model allows owners to shorten and even eliminate the trial and error process, plus you get training and marketing support from the franchisor. At Fuzziwig's Candy Factory, Inc., our goal is to work with you directly so that you can own and run a successful business.
The retail environment for new locations is dynamic and constantly changing. Demand for space in successful malls in the size range that fits the Fuzziwig's Candy Factory, CANDY HQTRS, and Sweets From Heaven profile (800 to 1,200 square feet) is in relatively short supply and high demand. Due to our strong reputation and good relationship with major landlords throughout the United States, we are offered good opportunities for new store openings on a continuous basis. Currently we have opportunities for new store locations in many Midwest, South, Southeast, East and Northeast states.
