The new, state-of-the-art boiler they’re standing beside will help increase candy production in the kitchen.”

From Rolf Boone, The Olympian:
“Charlotte Clary and Bev Vines-Haines, the two grandmothers behind the popular Ice Chips Candy, are moving their venture to Olympia from Yelm.
‘Explosive growth,’ Clary said during an interview and tour of the new facility this week, which is just off Old Highway 99 at 79th Avenue Southeast, across from Olympia Regional Airport.”
“So in August they signed a lease for 21,500 square feet of space and are set to begin moving in the coming days.”
