California transplants to New York City have good reason to be excited—at least those with a sweet tooth. The California-based candy maker See’s Candies recently celebrated the grand opening of its first New York location, in Greenwich Village. Bill Rhodes, CEO of Travis Melbren Inc. (which partnered with See’s Candies to bring the shop to the city), took a phone call from a lady who was so excited, she was screaming into the phone.
See’s Candies, which was founded in 1921, offers over 100 varieties of candy, from brittles to lollipops to boxed chocolates. Chocolates can also be purchased by weight. As is company tradition, visitors get a free sample.
See’s has 249 retail locations in the United States, as well as an online shop.
