Kelly's Kandy was established in 1974 by Thomas and Dale Sheehan. The Couple married in 1964 and ran a traveling concession business that took them to all kinds of events, including The Worlds Fair, The Indianapolis 500, Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, and the Kentucky Derby. The daughter of Vaudeville performers and self proclaimed "Chester Girl," Dale said the traveling got to be a bit much, especially after giving birth to her daughter, Kelly.
Tom and Dale didn't want Kelly to grow up on the road, but they didn't want to start working for anyone else either. The couple decided to launch a candy business at the original Booth's Corner Farmers Market on Naamans Creek Road in Bethel, PA and name it after their two daughters Kelly and Kandy.
The Sheehan's spent five more years at Booth's Corner after it was rebuilt from the fire that took place in 1973. Kelly's Kandy relocated to Brookhaven for a few years before purchasing the current store on MacDade Blvd in Collingdale in 1983.
Today the business is still run by the family. Dale, her daughter Kandy and her husband Patrick, and all of her grandchildren. Everyone has their own special jobs, whether it's making fudge, caramel corn, candy or caramel apples, chocolate pretzels, peanut brittle, custom chocolate pops and sets, Easter eggs, you name it, Kelly's Kandy has it covered.
“There is nothing better than a friend,
unless it is a friend with chocolate.”
