STATEHOUSE (March 29, 2016) — State Rep. Tom Saunders (R-Lewisville) today presented a resolution to Good’s Candies of Kennard to congratulate the store on 50 years of business.
“I am privileged to be able to honor Good’s Candies for their many years of success,” Saunders said. “Small businesses, like Good’s, are the backbone of our great state and I know they will continue to serve the community for a long time.”
The story of Good’s Candies begins with Delilah Lowery, or “Aunt Dee” as she was known. Aunt Dee originally learned the art of hand-dipped candy making in the 1920s and eventually founded a candy shop with her husband, Garret Lowery or “Uncle Beanie,” as he was known. The couple ran the business out of their home in Muncie.
Through the years, the business changed hands and locations but finally became Good’s Candies and settled down in the shop the business operates out of today.
Now in its fourth generation of family ownership, Good’s Candies continues a tradition that stretches back nearly a century starting with Aunt Dee and Uncle Beanie.
Saunders has been a longtime customer of Good’s and said he remembers buying his candies from Terri, the mother of the store’s current owner, Kevin Vickery.
Saunders honored the store at their location on 116 South Main Street in Kennard, Ind.
Rep. Saunders (R-Lewisville) represents Henry County and portions of Rush and Wayne counties.
