Meet Ron originally from England, now living in San Clemente, CA.
The one word that best describes Candy Baron is "Delicious!"
The experience Ron hopes people have when they walk into Candy Baron is "To be happily transported back in time as their eyes alight on the sumptuous varieties of candies, many of which they remember from their childhood.
The one thing Ron loves most about Candy Baron is "It brings pleasure to all our customers, old and young."
One year from today, Ron would like to see Candy Baron going from strength to strength and continuing to delight their customers. They would like to see Laguna Beach become increasingly popular as a tourist destination.
If Candy Baron were a movie, it wold be about Ron Baron (the Candy Baron) coming to America from England where, with his entrepreneurial skills he opened several Candy Baron stores one by one while overcoming many challenges. His ability to know when the time and locations were right and having faith in his abilities has turned his life into a sweet success!
The title of the movie would be called "The Candy Baron's Sweet Life."
I was exited to finally meet the owners of the Candy Baron! Ron and his wife Riki have owned Candy Baron stores for over two decades. They have been the owners of the Candy Baron Laguna Beach for 22 years and they are fixtures in the community. People come from far and wide just to meet them.
Ron has an amazing story of perseverance and persistence. His love of history and reading, led him to learning about cargo being transported in barrels which led him to using barrels as his signature piece for displaying candy.
Candy Baron has stores throughout California in Santa Monica, Monterey, San Francisco and Laguna Beach. Ron has learned how to run a successful business by paying attention to the market demands and has positioned his stores in high traffic locations.
When you walk into Candy Baron, you are taken back to your youth no matter your age. From the old cash register, to the salt water taffy, to the retro candy, time stands still. The friendly workers are always kind and pleasant. The music sets the tone for a delightful experience.
If you haven't been to the Candy Baron, your missing out. My family and I have always loved Candy Baron. We have fond memories of filling our bags with taffy and walking along the beach feeding our sweet tooth. Now that we've met the "Candy Baron", we are raving fans for life!
