Founder Christopher Beers opened his 14th Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop in Springfield, Ohio, in November 2022. Inspired by the creativity, suspense, and imagination of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, he created a candy store that offers an unmatched selection with quirky distractions like Rubber Chickens hanging from the ceiling.

Springfield, Ohio, Has A Sweet Tooth For Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop

Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop is the ultimate candy store experience offering customers the widest selection of nostalgic candy, over 250 varieties of Glass Bottled Craft Soda, plus a vast selection of snacks from Japan, Thailand, Belgium, and other countries. The store offers ice cream, milkshakes, toys, games, and so much more. Children and adults are amazed by our pneumatic air system that launches Mystery Tubes of Candy through the air! Grandpa Joe’s World Famous $5 Candy Buffet allows customers to fill a box with as much candy as possible, as long as the lid can close.

Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop Is The Place To Be

Since opening its doors at 4:05 p.m. on November 16th, 2022, the community support from Springfield has been tremendous. Far exceeding Owner Christopher Beers’ expectations, he looks to continue to be a part of the Springfield community by supporting local programs, sponsoring children’s events, and donating to community organizations.

“With the finest selection of all things confections, candies, snacks, and fun trinkets, I hope everyone that comes to the store enjoys all we have to offer and gives the hard-working team a high-five before they check out,” said Owner Christopher Beers.

Sweet Dreams Are Made By Working With The Greater Springfield Partnership

“The revitalization of Springfield, especially the downtown area, has been incredible to watch,” said Grandpa Joe’s owner Christoper Beers. “We are honored to be a part of and feel supported by the community. Mike McDorman and the Greater Springfield Partnership were instrumental in identifying my business as a great fit for Downtown Springfield.”

By choosing Springfield, Ohio, Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop has access to a reliable workforce that is committed to success. “It’s still 7 days a week, 14 hours a day for me with the focus of building my incredible team and providing the best possible experience in each one of my stores,” said Christopher. “I look forward to having my staff grow with me and continue to help build my company.” Since opening in November 2022, this location has strengthened the Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop brand and continues benefiting other Ohio stores, like Troy, Miamisburg, Middletown, and Chillicothe.
