Where should we go next?
The oldest candy store in Savannah, River Street Sweets is still family owned and operated by Jennifer and Tim Strickland. Just down the street, their father, Stan "The Candy Man" operates Savannah's Candy Kitchen, the largest candy store in the south since 1990.
With a combined history of 100 years of candy making experience, the Strickland family has made the south synonymous with handmade southern sweets. Whether it be our World Famous Pralines, salt water taffy, hand stretched peanut brittle or homemade pecan pies, our made-from-scratch southern delicacies are known worldwide.
Our guests have always loved the nostalgic experience of watching candy makers dip pralines onto giant marble slabs; stir glazed pecans in huge copper kettles; and see our 100-year-old saltwater taffy machine in action. We not only make our sweets in our stores, but also ship them out all over the country throughout the year. The holiday season is our busiest time. In fact, we are one of the United Parcel Service's biggest shippers in Savannah!
In addition to our River Street, Habersham, and City Market locations in Savannah, we have 12 other stores in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Atlanta, Nashville, and Maryland, with more on the way.
That's because in 2014, we began to franchise under the merged brand name River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen. Our first franchise opened in Pooler, Georgia at the Tanger Outlet Mall in 2015 and our second in Key West in July 2017. We are actively working on opening up several new locations including one in Lancaster, PA opening this Fall.
