The Candy Factory


For over 40 years, The Candy Factory has been creating and perfecting delicious, gourmet candy recipes. We offer a wide variety of fabulous chocolates, including rich Truffles, soft and fluffy Cremes, secret-recipe Caramel, and much more!


The Candy Factory is approaching our 46th year in business in downtown Columbia!  Our hours are M-F 9:30-6, Sat 10-5. Sun closed.  We also offer, delivery and shipping.  We are both a Candy and Boutique gift shop.  We make our candies right here in downtown Columbia, MO on the second floor of our building in our Candy Kitchen.  Customers can watch us make candy through the viewing room window.  It’s a great place to bring kids, families, and visitors of Columbia!

In addition to our “Columbia made” candies, we also sell a lot of other “Missouri made” products including candles from Tipton, MO, Dip mixes from KC, jewelry from local makers, etc.
