The Candy Business is Sweet…

With Our Exciting Candy Store Franchise!

Becoming a River Street Sweets • Savannah’s Candy Kitchen candy store franchise business owner, could just be the most exciting franchise opportunity you’ve always dreamed about! We offer a broad range of deliciously different, handmade confections and a fun, original guest experience. Our candy store franchise opportunity concept appeals to a wide potential guest base – tourists, locals, and people of all ages! Unlike ice cream shops, customers can take home a box of our delicious peanut brittle or glazed pecans, which creates brand loyalty. Plus, as a business owner, you can focus on pleasing local guests in your own candy store franchise location, and won’t have to deal with the hassle of shipping orders – we’ll do that for you. But you will have the opportunity to share in a portion of revenues obtained through our mail and order online services, which offer Southern candies as well as scrumptious baked goods such as our layer cakes and pecan pies. At River Street Sweets • Savannah’s Candy Kitchen, we also offer a full gift line, including baskets, tins, and towers of some of our favorite treats.
