A Candy Factory: An Arizona Family Tradition

Posted By and on Wed, Dec 21, 2011 at 9:00 AM

For more than 40 years, the Cerreta Candy Company has been a fixture in Arizona. Patriarch James Cerreta, 84, is still going strong at the head of the company that has seen every member of his family be a part of the business.

Cerreta and his sons, each leading a section of production on the company floor, and his granddaughter talk about what keeps them coming back for more.

Cerreta Candy Company is located in Glendale, Ariz., and is a fixture in many city-related events and provides VIP and general tours for the public.
