A new "Destination" candy store Capital Candy opens its doors in Capital Mall Jefferson City.

We can’t think of any industry that would be more fun to take to the next level than candy.

Capital Candy, the exciting new store that opens officially on November 15th, offers a stunning range of homemade fudge, truffles, Jellybeans and an eye-popping array of colorful candy. Added to this is a new selection of Gourmet Capital Coffee, which customers can sip in the new coffee setting of Coffee Corner, or take home whole bean packets of their favorite coffee flavors.

These are some of the treats that await Jefferson City-area residents as the upscale candy shop opens its doors in the Capital Mall. Just in time for the holiday shopping rush, Capital Candy holds its official grand opening on Nov. 15th. The store is in the South wing of the mall, and replaces Mr. Bulky, which was located next door.

More than a typical candy store that mall-goers might pop into on a whim, the shop’s joint owners, David Robinson, who owned the Mr Bulky’s, and Terry Crouch, envision Capital Candy as a destination store.

“The 21st Century business model has changed, with customers now wanting shopping to be a fun time, rather than a chore,” said David Robinson, and he added that “We’ve created a relaxing, upscale atmosphere, that delivers an enjoyable and unique shopping experience for visitors to Capital Candy."

Additions of the fudge and truffles made fresh on-site, together with delicious gourmet coffee and tea, is a great addition to the products that were offered in the Mr Bulky’s. Casual seating is available, along with free Wi-Fi – a first for the Capital Mall.    

Jefferson City’s Capital Candy is just the beginning for Crouch and Robinson. Next up is a new store in Fort Leonard Wood Military base in Missouri. This represents a whole new opportunity to get our company growing, by serving this countries great men and women in uniform.

David Robinson owns Mr. Bulky in the Columbia Mall, before expanding to Jefferson City. Terry Crouch has over 25 years of experience in the food industry, and they make a formidable team.

“I guess you could call us the Willie Wonka’s of the Midwest,” they said. “We can’t think of any industry that would be more fun to take to the next level than candy.”
