3 Reasons to Join the Candy Industry
on August 12, 2016
If you’ve ever thought about starting your own candy store, there’s never been a better time than now! Here are three reasons why opening your own candy franchise and joining the candy industry will be one of the sweetest decisions you’ll ever make:
Candy is a growing industry
The first chocolate candy bar was made almost 200 years ago in 1847 and people have been going coocoo for cocoa ever since! According to new research from Packaged Facts, chocolate candy sales in the United States are expected to exceed $26 billion in sales by 2018, up from an estimated $22 billion in 2015.
Candy never goes out of style
Unlike many products that trend and then fade out with time, candy is always a favorite. From gift giving to holiday celebrations, candy has become a part of tradition. With that being said, it’s no surprise that chocolate comes in as one of the most popular and widely consumed candy products in the entire world – Americans alone eat over 2.8 billion pounds each year!
Candy spreads happiness
According to University Health News Daily, chocolate has been known for its mood enhancing effects due to its chemical makeup, which helps explain that feeling of joy you get when taking a bite out of your favorite chocolate treat! Plus, seeing the joy people get when watching homemade pralines being made or fresh taffy being pulled is an experience unlike anything else. Why not help spread that joy to others by opening a candy store of your own?
