About Us

Candy Central is a candy and snack wholesale distributor founded in Newark, NJ in 1937. It was originally known as Saffer-Simon. In the early 90’s, Saffer-Simon merged with its largest competitor, Consolidated Service Distributors, Inc. and over the next two decades, bought and merged with other distribution companies to become Candy Central. In the latest move, we have upgraded from operating out of several warehouses in Union, NJ to a fully automated, state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled distribution center, located in East Hanover, NJ. We service over 10,000 accounts nationwide, including many of the country’s leading discount party chain stores.

Candy Central stocks brands your customers will love! M&M's, Hershey's, Snickers, Mentos, Tic Tac, Gummi, Kind Bars, Kellogg’s, Kraft, Thai Kitchen, Clif & Luna Bars, Powerbar, Zone Bars, Toblerone, Jack Links and much more. We carry everything from bagged snacks to traditional candy bars to healthy treats. (Some snacks listed can be special ordered. Please contact us).
