Long Description:
According to Wikipedia, the company is now headquartered in South San Francisco, California. According to the clerk at the counter at this store in Carson (Los Angeles), this was the "original" kitchen back in 1921 when the company was founded.

It still operates and produces candies, however there is no factory tour. I sure wish there was a tour.

You can find a See's Candies in just about every mall in the Western United States. When you walk into their store, the clerk will always say, "Hello" and offer you a sample. Take them up on their offer!

See's Candies also offers to help with your school or church fundraisers.

And check them out on-line. (visit link)
