Candy Depot Open For Business in Bellevue

Just In Time For Easter!


“It’s our holiday, it’s a candy holiday,” Meadows said with a chuckle.

“The timing was good.” The shop may have just opened on Tuesday, but Meadows and Thomson have been in the candy game for much longer. According to Meadows, they’ve been working at it for eight years. “We’ve really worked hard at trying to improve what we have, and we’re happy.” “Something that started out right across the street as a hobby, and eight years later (we’re here),” added Thomson.

After working at the same thing for so long within the community, Thomson and Meadows have a pretty good idea of their market. When they decided to open up shop, they knew they would have to offer good quality candy and services at decent prices while still hoping to make a profit. “I think our prices are very reasonable … we try to get the best quality that we can afford, that other people can afford,” said Meadows. “We have really searched hard to find the best ingredients that are affordable.” It was clear that the two had put plenty of thought into their target market. After all, there’s a difference between selling chocolate in a rural Ohio town and a bigger city like Columbus orAnn Arbor. “You’re not going to sell a four dollar truffle,” joked Thomson.

In the end, the two just wanted to take the next step in doing something that they really enjoyed that would contribute to Bellevue. “I just think we want to do something that makes us happy and makes other people happy. We knew we wanted to do something together,” said Meadows. “The more stores you have, the more people are using the town,” added Thomson.

As far as the community goes, Meadows and Thomson just want the community to keep checking back in to see what’s new. “Our candy will be fresh. It’s not going to be sitting on the counter some place,” promised Meadows. “The beauty of owning a small business is the fact that we can personalize things, and if somebody has a special interest or they want a special kind of candy, we’re creative enough to come up and help them figure out what it is.”
