June 2021

June is National Candy Month and Ohio has contributed to dentist visits since before the Civil War! From producing international brands such as Dum Dums lollipops to small town fudge shops, these businesses put a smile on the faces of kids of all ages.

As we start venturing out and exploring our state more this summer, look up the local candy business on your trip and stop by to sample their famous chocolates or bring some back home for friends and family.

Many of these businesses started in someone’s kitchen or garage. Have an idea or passion that you could turn into a business? Make it happen by visiting the Secretary of State’s Business Services page. On our site you can file your new business and connect with valuable resources so that your venture can contribute to Ohio’s growing economy.
