See’s Candies First Ever New York Shop Now Open

Famous Candy Maker Partners with Travis Melbren Inc. to Open Doors in
Manhattan

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–See’s Candies (See’s), one of the most trusted and timeless candy
makers, has partnered with Bill Rhodes, CEO of Travis Melbren Inc., to
open its first ever permanent shop in Manhattan on January 20, 2017.

Located at 60 West 8th Street, the shop serves more than 100 varieties
of candy — all made from scratch with quality ingredients. See’s is
famous for American-made delicious treats including boxed chocolates,
peanut brittle, lollypops, and seasonal gifts.

“What makes See’s Candies so special is the chocolate maker’s commitment
to using only the finest and freshest ingredients, where employees are
treated like family and customers are warmly greeted with a sample,”
said Bill Rhodes. “I’m looking forward to providing this experience and
iconic tradition to the residents of New York City.”

The shop features everything from the iconic black-and-white checkered
floor to the friendliest customer service in New York, and carries on
the See’s tradition of handing out a free sample to each guest.

“Over the past ninety-six years, See’s has remained true to the heritage
founded by Charles and Mary See in 1921. We’re thrilled to be partnering
with Bill to bring our commitment to tradition, taste and quality to the
New York City community, and welcome the residents to be a part of the
See’s family,” said Brad Kinstler, CEO of See’s Candies.

See’s is planning a grand opening event at the shop to celebrate the
opening later this spring.
