Can’t get enough chocolate? A bend landmark is expanding to a new location.  Goodies Chocolate and Ice Cream Factory is opening a new location in the Scandia Plaza in Bend Saturday. Co-owner Dane Danforth says this store will be a bit different from their other stores: “We took a little different path on this because the primary focus of this facility is for people to be able to see or watch us make chocolate and ice cream; along with the museum that will have the history of chocolate and ice cream. But the main focus is the tour part of the facility. And then we will be having self serve candy and our ice cream, fudge, chocolate and caramel corn." Danforth says they have hired about 25 people to staff the new facility, and some will learn how to conduct a tour. The grand opening is Saturday at 10 a.m.; the Jelly Belly Bug and mascot will be on hand, and there will be prizes and fun for everyone.
