Where Will the New Enstrom Candies Location be in Colorado?

While we are blessed here in Grand Junction with two Enstrom Candies storefronts, other Colorado cities haven't been quite as lucky.

However, their luck is about to change, because a new location for Enstrom Candies is set to open in Montrose, Colorado.

Why is Enstrom Candies Expanding in Colorado?

The former home of the Russell Stover Chocolates retail store recently sold for $3.2 million to Home Loan State Bank.

Home Loan State Bank is planning on occupying some of the space along with Home Loan Insurance but reached out to Enstrom Candies President Doug Simons to ask if his company was interested in expanding to Montrose.

Simons said yes and now there are plans to completely transform the space. An official opening date has not been determined, but I know for certain it will be worth the wait.

What is the History of Enstrom Candies in Colorado?

Enstrom Candies was actually created right here in Grand Junction, Colorado, and has been family-operated since its inception in 1960.

Founded by Chester K. “Chet” Enstrom and his wife Vernie, the company has substantially grown with the help of Chet's son and daughter-in-law son Emil and Mary Enstrom, and is currently run by Emil and Mary's daughter Jamee and son-in-law Doug Simons.

Here's to many more years of success for Enstrom Candies in Colorado and around the world!
