Wherever you go, it's easy to find. Candy seems to be available just about everywhere. How lucky it is to find your favorite candy. But is it luck, or is there more to it?
As it turns out, there's a lot more to it. Behind the
scenes a network of people, trucks, warehouses, and technology supports the delivery of packaged goods to locations where consumers can make purchases. In the mid-Atlantic, the supply of candy is from Layman Candy Company, Inc., a full-service wholesale distributor, supplying retailers with not only candy items but grocery items, dairy products, health and beauty
aids, tobacco products, and deli goods.
The company started as a small candy distributor more
than 50 years ago for convenience stores in and around
Roanoke, VA. Today, Layman Candy serves more than 500 businesses with more than 7,000 convenience items.
