Hidden Gems: Meet Shannon Roberts and Krystal Canady of MidwestCandySto

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shannon Roberts and Krystal Canady.

Hi Shannon and Krystal, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
We started off as making our dreams a reality. We started in a 4 bedroom house where one of the rooms was our storage/office room where we packaged orders did our promotions and handled our social media and pop ups which later turned into people asking us was we ever going to get a store so they could shop with us in a store setting that is when we got our suite July 1st 2021 which was about 500 sq ft to now as of October 16th having a 1100 sq ft storefront it is all because of our supporters we are able to operate a business during COVID and still be able to give back to the community and less fortunate and put smiles on so many faces while giving them the comfort of there favorite snacks

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I will say some how god manages to bless us in some of our most trying obstacles we’ve had our fair share of good and bad times but we still triumph we are still working on executing a better traveling plan because as of now we are driving all of our product back from the Midwest to the west coast Arizona that’s probably our biggest challenge because we have to keep inventory full

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We offer Midwest snacks and childhood candy to people all over the world we are known for our Midwest goodies such as sloppy containers,taffy grapes,penny candies,Vitners crunchy curls and a list of other items what sets us apart from everyone else is because we actually interact with our customers we treat them like family and actually listen to what they want we are most proud of being able to start a business during a pandemic and still being able to operate as of 2021 strong we would like everyone to know now you can get your favorite childhood snacks and goodies no matter where you are

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
No luck just blessings
