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.

Candy Company Moving to Bolingbrook
A candy company will relocate to the former Bolingbrook Home Depot distribution facility after signing off on what Crain's Chicago Business calls the biggest local industrial lease of 2014.

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.

Ferrara makes candies including Lemonheads, Red Hots, Fruit Stripe gum and Black Forest gummy bears, to name a few.
