Candy Company Moving to Bolingbrook
Ferrara Candy Co. makes Lemonhead candies, Red Hots, Fruit Stripe gum and Black Forest gummy bears, to name a few.
Ferrara Candy Co., created in 2012 by the merger of Farley's & Sather's Candy Co. and Forest Park-based Ferrara Pan Candy Co., will take over the more than 747,000-square-foot warehouse at 901 Carlow Drive along I-55 in Bolingbrook.
The candy maker signed a 15-year deal for the site, according to Crain's.
The building is owned by Chicago-based investment firm Heitman LLC, which bought it in 2012 for $34.6 million.
Home Depot left the Bolingbrook location, along with its Romeoville facility at 1070 Windham Parkway, to move to a 1.6 million-square-foot Joliet facility in 2013.
