Goody's Candy opened it's first store in Sunriver in 1984and hopefully, by the end of the year, will have a new store in Beaverton.
Owner Dane Danforth says this will be the eighth store with the Goody's name; and there seems to be a lot of interest for even more Portland locations. "You know we're not aggressively marketing that. All of our franchises come from people calling us. But I am in talks with a gentleman up there who is looking at four additional stores. Not the same people we are doing our franchises with now. So I think there's a definite interest in our product. People really love our brand."
Danforth says they also are selling their carmelcorn in 44 Csto's in the northwest; and the "Goody's" name is rapidly becoming well known.
The Beaverton store could be open before the Christmas holiday.
