Bag A Sweet Candy Company was formed as a partnership between brother in laws Frank Stansny and Al Tokar. The two Broadview Heights residents started bagging bulk candy in the basement of Al’s home on Wallings Road before moving into a building at 4011 Brookpark Road. They sold the bags of candies to grocery, drug, and convenient stores though a network of 6 independent distributors. In 1982 the company was sold to Tom and Judi Scheiman. Tom and Judi moved the company 4 miles west to 10904 Brookpark Road into a 4,000 square foot building and started selling candy to the public. The retail store name Joey’s Candies was named after Tom & Judi’s son Joe. However in 1993, the new name, b.a.Sweetie Candy Company was born. The company then moved back east about a mile to it’s move back east about a mile to 7480 Brookpark Road. The 6,000 square foot building was retrofitted to incorporate the new big box design of selling candy to the public. As the business grew, so did the need for more space. Over the next 12 years, the company continued to buy out neighboring store leases and expand the store 3 more times to it’s current 21,000 square foot.
