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!
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.
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
Why Our Franchise?
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.
You do not need experience in the retail candy business to become a Fuzziwig's Candy Factory franchisee. Our Franchise Training Program gives you all the training you need to run your candy store. Prior to your store opening, you'll have the opportunity to train at an actual Fuzziwig's Candy Factory store where you'll learn first-hand what it takes to run the business. You'll also benefit from classroom-style training led by our team of experienced business professionals.
The training continues long after your doors open. Your Fuzziwig's Candy Factory Field Consultant will be in regular contact with you and you'll be able to network with corporate staff as well as other franchisees. Additional support is also provided through our Franchisee Center, periodic field training, seminars, marketing material and regional and national meetings. If you need help, we guarantee you won't have to look far or work hard to get it!
