About Us

Vision & Mission

We at The Candy Store believe that everyone has their cravings that need proper indulging and sometimes local crave tamers just don’t do it. 

Our mission is to provide you with the widest possible selection of packaged and fresh American and British grocery goods not readily available anywhere else in the Czech Republic – all in one place and for a local price! Thanks to an established cooperation with numerous USA and UK based suppliers and producers, we are able to offer you hundreds of products very rarely found in the local markets. After all, snacking is an art, and we believe you should do so only with the yummiest and most scrumptious goodies out there.

All the products are spead out over our ten stores – 3 in Prague, 1 in Brno, Plzeň, Hradec Králové, Pardubice, České Budějovice, Liberec or Ústí nad Labem – as well as over the e-shop if home delivery is needed.

Distribution

There is nothing like providing your customers with proper UK cereal, letting them snack on mouthwatering pretzels  or washing down a juicy burger with vanilla coke. We realise that not only do local markets come short for individuals, but very often also for businesses. That is why we also distribute a range of our products to restaurants, bars, hotels, clubs or even grocery stores at wholesale prices. 

Do not hesitate to contact us if you’d like to see whether we could supply your business as well or even if you have suggestions on where you would like to see our products!

History & Team

Opening in September 2011, The Candy Store is a fresh addition to Prague’s food-specialty scene. The idea behind the sweet shop was simple: our personal love for all US-wrapped goodness and the difficulty of getting it here. However, over the past five years we have immensely expanded our selection, delivery reach and have become a a key player in the specialty food sector.

A signifant step in this growth was the acquisition of two new shops, previously owned by Robertson Delicatessen. These shops, located in Prague 2 – Vinohrady and Prague 6 – Dejvice, offer an incredible variety of UK produced groceries. With this step, The Candy Store has grown into a chain of specialty shops provided central Europe with an immense number of UK and USA imported products. Since then, The Candy Store has grown into 10 stores in the Czech Republic and have significantly increased our wholesale operations.

With this expansion, our team expanded as well, however, The Candy Store is still a family-run business. Having spent several years in the States, we wanted to enrich our home country with some of the tastes we fell in love with. 

Our main values are quality, flexibility and, most importantly, top-notch customer service. We want our customers to feel at home in our store, and, with our products, at home in Prague and the Czech Republic.
