In the early 1930’s Joe and Mary Stutz started the Stutz Candy Company in their home. They produced handmade chocolates and delicious center pieces for their friends and family. The business quickly grew, and they expanded manufacturing into their garage. In a few short years, this hobby had become a thriving business and they were ready to buy their first factory. In 1938 they moved out of their home and into their first official retail location. By 1964, Stutz Candy Company was booming. They expanded to three retail locations: Jenkintown, Warrington, and Ship Bottom, New Jersey. Over the next 60 years, Stutz Candy grew, and changed hands from one generation to another.
In working with Stutz candy, we knew that we were working with a company that has a very special history and brand. We wanted to create a website that would capture their historic roots, while also providing a modern and convenient shopping experience for their customers. Our task was to create a modern ecommerce website that would be true to their brand and show up in the search engines so that they would attract more customers.
Stutz Candy wanted their website to increase sales and to provide their customers with a convenient way to order candy if they did not live near one of their retail locations. In addition, it was time to get rid of their old website because it had programming bugs and was difficult for them to update and edit. Our goals for the project were clear; to increase their revenue, increase the amount of online traffic that came to their website, simplify the checkout process, and stay true to their established brand.
