Established in 2015, Collier Candy Company offers an eclectic mix of new and vintage candy focusing on hard candy, chocolates and premium sodas. In addition to a mix of regional lines like Poppy Pop Corn from Asheville, the shop features classic brands like Charleston Chews, Bubble Gum Cigarettes and Cigars, and Chick-O-Stick, to name a few.

“2020 has been a difficult year and I’m sure we can all use a little bright spot here and there. We’re excited to announce a new bright spot at Optimist Hall,” the food hall’s owner Merritt Lancaster said in a news release.

This is the candy company’s first venture outside of the Atlanta area, and the 22nd tenant to open in Optimist Hall.
