Sanders announces major land purchase in Clinton Township

Clinton Township, Mich., December 27, 2017 – Sanders and Morley Candy Makers, Inc. announced today that the company recently acquired approximately five acres of property located directly next to its corporate headquarters and chocolate factory in Clinton Township, Michigan. .

“Metro Detroit is our home so we are committed to investing in the area and providing more job opportunities,” said Ron Rapson, President of Sanders and Morley Candy Makers. “With this land being so close to our existing property, we decided the best strategic decision was to make the purchase.”

The property provides Sanders with ample opportunity for much needed expansion as the company continues to experience rapid growth. The chocolate and baked goods manufacturer is still weighing its option on how it will use the land.

Sanders & Morley Candy Makers has been a long-standing member of the Metropolitan Detroit community with some of its current employees working with the company for more than forty years.

“This land can be used in a variety of ways to benefit our operations,” said Rapson. “Our team is working to make careful considerations on how to best use it taking into account both the current and future needs of our growing business.”

The property purchase comes after Sanders spent the last three years investing several million dollars back into its manufacturing and operations. The company completed an extensive remodel of its flagship Chocolate & Ice Cream Shoppe located inside its corporate headquarters in October 2017. Between 2014 and 2017, Sanders has also added three new production lines, gained a 50,000-square foot distribution center, employed a new cloud-based ERP system and launched a new website using the latest Magento 2 Platform technology.

“It’s an exciting time to be part of this iconic brand as we embark on our next 142 years,” Rapson said. “We look forward to taking on even more opportunities and further growing our team in the future.”

After four decades, Sanders is offering Peanut Brittle again

Clinton Township, Mich., November 22, 2016 – Sanders recently announced its new Peanut Brittle is available for national retail sale, and can be purchased in Sanders Retail Shoppes or online at www.sanderscandy.com.

Sanders Peanut Brittle was last made in 1974 at the old Sanders Plant in Highland Park, Michigan. After being flooded with requests from long-time fans, Sanders decided to bring back this timeless candy.

“The demand for new and classic Sanders products is greater than ever and customers are asking us to bring back some of their old favorites, said Walter Pilon, Sanders and Morley Candy Makers Senior Account Executive. “We are proud to once again offer such a popular item. The new peanut brittle is a great addition to our expanding line of snack items.”

Sanders’ new peanut brittle is made using real sugar and real butter, along with fresh peanuts to give it a classic nutty and buttery flavor. It is also hand crafted to deliver a more unique bite than other peanut brittles.

“When we set out to offer a peanut brittle we wanted it to be better and different than what is available from most candy makers today,” said Brian Jefferson, Chairman & CEO of Sanders & Morley Candy Makers. “This peanut brittle is perfectly cooked to the hard-crack stage making it more thin and crunchy than typical peanut brittles.”

Sanders Peanut Brittle is available in a 4-ounce self-standing box at a suggested retail price of $5.99, with an introductory price of $4.99 at sanderscandy.com and in Metro Detroit Sanders Chocolate & Ice Cream Shoppes.
