Candy enthusiasts can sometimes get a little nuts about the delicious confections they enjoy. Luckily, the Dillon Candy Company caters to these characters with their own nuttiness.
The company was founded way back in 1918 by George Dillon. Dillon began making candy on his own in the back of the grocery store he worked at in Brunswick, Georgia. Pretty soon, he was making delicious handmade brittles and nut candies for people all over the U.S. to enjoy.
After Dillon died in 1983, his family took over the business, but stayed committed to honoring the traditional way of making the candies that their grandfather perfected more than 90 years ago.
With a variety of delicious candied nuts, such as pecan pralines and gourmet nut rolls, along with a great selection of candy brittles, the Dillon Candy Company provides treats for any sweet-toothed customer that walks through your shop’s doors!

Use signage that reminds customers of way back when. Develop colorful or attention-grabbing displays that will highlight your gourmet chocolates or luscious confectionary candies.
Peak Their Interest With Samples
Another way to sell your candy is to give out samples. If you’ve ever shopped at Costco, you know that samples do equate into a sales or else they wouldn’t do it. This minimal investment promotion highlights your products and creates goodwill with your customers.
Pick three or four of your higher end candy items to sample out, such as almond toffee, cherry cordials, sugar free candies, whatever you feel your costumers will find delicious.
It cannot be stressed enough that the person handing out your candies must be knowledgeable about the product. Your staffers need to know the name of the product, what’s in the products, as well as the prices of the candies.
Candy Compliments Every Product
Cross promotion works very well during holiday seasons. Your store might offer a deal, such as: buy a select group of candies and get a free scented candle.
People love free things and will often make a purchase because they get an item free. They see this as an extra perceived value. (Tip: use slow moving or obsolete items as your free gift.)
Using items that are slow movers gives your customer a perceived value, while clearing your floor space so you can bring in new products. Plus, you’re leading the customers to your other lines of products.
If you use Facebook, Myspace or Twitter as part of your marketing, you need to be sure to let your social media friends know that your store now carries the most delectable fudge or that you’ll be offering free candy canes from noon until 2pm on Black Friday.
Tweet about your new line of saltwater taffy. Using social media sites is a free way to promote your shop and alert customers about your hot new products.
