California State Senator Ben Hueso Awarded Seaside Candy with a Business of the Month in a Surprise Visit last Week!

Ben" Hueso is currently the California State Senate that represents the 40th Senate District, which encompasses the border regions of San Diego County which and Imperial County.

When I spoke with Joann Barrows who co-owns the store along with Angela Frank said that they were very honored and quite surprised as they weren't expecting the visit.

Seaside Candy in Imperial Beach has been serving candy and old-fashioned charm since opening in 2013. The owner, Angela Frank, is inspired by nostalgic sweets from a simpler time. In 2015, she brought in her good friend and colleague, Joann Barrows. They run a real estate business in the same building and together they have worked to develop an inviting space the community can enjoy.

Seaside Candy has a wide selection of vintage-inspired candy and gifts – classics such as taffy, nostalgic candies, decadent homemade fudge, classic Thrifty brand ice cream, soft serve and more – that are sure to bring back fond memories for customers.

Just steps from the beach, Seaside Candy offers a relaxing place to enjoy the beauty of South Bay San Diego. The store has continuously grown since its opening, expanding to now include a patio and retro-themed room for private parties, meetings and events.

Please join me in recognizing Seaside Candy as business of the month and thanking them for making South Bay even sweeter!
