The family of River Street Sweets • Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is proud to be part of a candy industry that makes people smile and satisfies their sweet tooth. We’re also excited that our industry is expanding, proving that the timeless tradition of quality candies continues to excite and delight generations of candy lovers.
Americans’ hunger for candy – especially chocolate – is growing rapidly, and our candy and sweets franchise business opportunity gives you the chance to dip into this lucrative industry.
Few industries have the power to spread joy in the way the candy industry does. Give someone a delicious morsel of chocolate or saltwater taffy, and you can count on receiving a smile in return. In fact, the candy industry has a direct economic impact of $35 billion, according to the National Confectioners Association. The field employs 55,000 Americans, and each of these jobs supports another seven jobs in related industries. In other words, the candy industry fuels 400,000 individuals’ jobs in agriculture, retail, and transportation. It’s a big deal.

An Established, Family-Run Business
River Street Sweets is not a generic candy store. Since our family company opened its doors in 1973, we have specialized in the finest southern confections. We hand-dip our World Famous Pralines on marble slabs every day, right in front of our guests, following our secret family recipe that’s made only of the freshest ingredients. Our guests also love our legendary chocolate and pecan loggerheads, as well as our glazed pecans.
A Variety of Treats to Please Every Guests
But we don’t stop there. We produce, by hand, 24 flavors of salt water taffy — our part of this $8 billion industry, says Company Week — gourmet apples, fudge, and ice cream. In the over 40-year history of our company, we have grown to 17 locations in several states, with others in the works.
