At RSS•SCK candy store franchises, customers can buy our handmade Southern sweets, including World Famous Pralines®, saltwater taffy, hand stretched peanut brittle and pecan pies. But, they’ll linger to watch live candy making, performed right in the store by you or your on-site candy-maker.

We’ll teach you how to create delicious confections that will keep the cash register in your sweets franchise ringing.
