Standard Candy to Expand in Nashville, Tennesee

Standard Candy Co. Inc. is relocating manufacturing operations from Eastman, Georgia, to the company's headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, bringing about 250 jobs to Middle Tennessee. The move is scheduled to take place by April. "For several months, we have been looking at all our options in order to position the company for future growth," said Standard's CEO James Spradley Jr. "We believe this is the best overall decision for Standard." Standard's Nashville plant currently employs more than 300 workers in management and production line positions. The facility will be expanded to accommodate the influx of workers.
