Peterson Candies Passes the Candy Baton

Peterson’s Candies has served the community, the country and even some areas of the world with friendly service and fine chocolates since 1931. Steve and Chris Frankson have had the extreme pleasure of owning and operation Peterson’s for the past 25 years and consider the candy store, their employees and customers a family…a home away from home.
Time has passed, and the Franksons have come to a place in life where it is time to pass the baton. While advancing into retirement, the Franksons desire to make themselves available to aid their successor in being able to maintain and continue the fine quality Peterson’s has become so well known for.
It has been a very hard decision to make to retire, which will require finding someone interested in continuing the legend and history of one of Chautauqua County’s oldest and finest candy stores.
Peterson’s slogan is “Candy you remember as a child-the candy your children will remember” and it is the Frankson’s desire that whoever replaces them would continue in the tradition of fine chocolates and wonderful memories.
The Franksons are working closely with Consultant/Licensed Broker, Century 21 Turner Brokers, William Salter, and any inquiries you may have in regards to Peterson’s Candies should be directed to, Mr. Salter at 716-640-4360 or email:
