Famous southern candies come to Key West
on September 16, 2016
Key West Florida has more to offer than just key lime pie, and the southernmost point in the continental United States is getting an even wider array of delicious, gourmet southern candies and confections with the opening of Savannah, Georgia’s most famous candy store, River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen.
Glen Willard, a franchise candy store owner of River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen’s with a location in Georgia, helms this new location in the Sunshine State.
“Growing up in Savannah, I’ve enjoyed visits to River Street Sweets and Savannah’s Candy Kitchen for many years, so getting to be a part of this historic company is like a dream come true,” Willard said.
River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is a marriage of two well-known and highly respected gourmet candy brands based in the Southeastern U.S, River Street Sweets and Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. After operating independent brands for more than two decades, the Strickland family, the proprietors of both candy stores, reunited to offer the River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen franchise opportunity.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Glen sign on for another River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen location, and in less than a year since opening his first location,” Jennifer Strickland, co-owner and vice president of River Street Sweets•Savannah’s Candy Kitchen said. “He and his family have been instrumental in the growth of our franchise and he’s the perfect example of what we are searching for in our franchisees.”
