Do you remember trips to the candy store as a kid? The sweet sticky licorice and the bright colorful candies were the perfect reward for good behavior as a child. But candy is not just for children.
Candy store businesses are emerging as one of the front-runners in low investment start-ups. There is always someone who needs a little pick me up after a hard day of work or just wants to satisfy their sweet tooth. Opening a candy store can thus; be a feasible option to yield profits, not only in the Halloween season but all year round. But there are certain steps that you would need to follow.
Select a location that has high foot traffic and is easily accessible to customers. Keep in mind your niche target market. Every candy store differs on the basis of the type of candy they sell. It can be vegan, gourmet, artisan etc.
Your next job is to find reliable vendors that have unique and hard to find candy that will give your store an edge.
