CEO Messages | See’s Candies

Sep 8, 2022

With summer coming to an end and the holiday season approaching, we are excited to be part of your upcoming celebrations. From Halloween to New Year's, and all the joyous happenings in between, you can always count on us to not only be a part of your tried and true family traditions, but to help create new ones as you spend time with family and friends.

Speaking of the joyous happenings in between, our founder Mary See's birthday is right around the corner, and we want you to be part of this occasion as we celebrate! We wouldn't be here 101 years later if it wasn't for her and those delicious recipes that make the candies you love. To honor her, a special Deal of the Day will be offered from 9/10–9/17. We invite you to visit one of our shops each day, or check online, to learn more about these sweet deals. READ MORE

I hope your holiday season is off to a bright start! This month, amidst the festivities, we will be wrapping up our Centennial—and as I reflect on this year, we want to say thank you for making the past twelve months so memorable.

Since 1921, See’s has proudly put you, our customers, first, and in turn, you have helped us grow, innovate and succeed. Without you, and your loyalty to the brand, this year could have turned out very differently. So, as we finish the year strong, still making the best candy on the planet—I speak for all of Team See’s when I say we couldn’t be more appreciative. READ MORE

It's hard to believe that we are heading into the last few months of our year-long Centennial celebration! It has been a banner year, to say the least, and I’m confident we will finish it out strong. We have so much to look forward to here at See’s as we approach the holiday season. Personally, it's my favorite time of year to be in the business of making and selling joy!

In honor of our 100th anniversary, we have launched a new Limited-Time Sweet at the beginning of every month, and I hope you are enjoying each one as much as I am. In August, we released the highly requested Dark Salted Caramel, and this month’s sweet is extra special. To celebrate our incredible founder, Mary See, during her birthday month and amidst our Centennial, we've launched a festive new flavor--Birthday Cake! It's golden vanilla buttercream, deliciously draped in rich white chocolate and topped with a dash of rainbow candy sprinkles…perfect for the occasion! And as it is only available through September 2021, be sure to celebrate Mary with a piece of our take on Birthday Cake while it's here! READ MORE

It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through our Centennial year! 2021 is flying by, and I know I speak for many of us when I say that I’m so happy things are starting to return to normal.

I am back to one of my favorite routines-visiting shops, and it feels great. I love to hear how See’s plays a role in your family traditions, how we have brought you joy when you needed it most, and of course, chatting about your favorite pieces. Our first See’s Principle is: Serve Customers With A Smile. What that means is that we are happy to take care of customers, and if we’ve done our job, you are smiling, and so are we. Your support is the reason why we are still here, selling the best candy on the planet, 100 years later. And for that, we thank you. READ MORE

Our focus has always been on you, our customers. And to take care of our customers, we take care of our team. Now, more than ever, our top priority is the health and safety of you and our employees. Thank you for your support through what has been a very tough year for all of us. We have continued to adapt with a shifting landscape, to ensure we adhere to Centers for Disease Control guidelines and state and local public health direction. Even before the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, we had taken the necessary steps to stay informed and will continue to do so. READ MORE

We appreciate your support and dedication to See’s throughout the years, and it is even more meaningful during these unprecedented times.

Since the beginning of this event, See’s has thought first about our customers and employees, working to make the best decisions to keep them safe and be a good community partner. In support of that, we have continued to monitor and adhere to federal, state and local mandates, as well as CDC recommendations. We have balanced an ever-changing landscape with common sense and a dedication to you, our customers, and the great See’s employees who serve you with pride and dedication every day. READ MORE

What a year! We’ve gotten through a lot together, and See’s is looking forward to bringing joy to you, your families, friends, and colleagues. While we can all agree we’re looking forward to 2021, what better way would there be to end 2020 than by spreading some cheer?

With the holiday season approaching, we’re busy preparing our American made, delicious candies and holiday gifts. We are working hard to pack and ship orders quickly, but we know that during this unprecedented year there will be delays due to capacity limits with our carriers. To address the “new normal” in 2020, I’ve been committed to transparency and communication with you, our dedicated and faithful customers. That’s why I want to make sure you’re ready for the holiday rush, so you can fully experience the joy of See’s this season. READ MORE

See’s has been making delicious candy for nearly 100 years. 2020 and COVID-19 have brought challenges to us, just as it has to every business, family and organization. As we see our customers and employees as part of the See’s family, we sincerely hope you and your loved ones and friends are in good health. And for those who have suffered loss or worry, please know that we understand and share in that with you. READ MORE

2020 needs more good news—and here’s some from See’s: We are back! I am happy to announce that as of this week, every See’s shop that can be open, is. Less than 10% of our stores are in mall locations where the mall itself is not open, but every other See’s shop is operating for pick up service at the least. READ MORE

As we continue to manage through these unprecedented times, the health and safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority.

One of the best ways we can do that is to make all the necessary improvements to ensure we’re living up to your expectations in every aspect of how See’s operates. READ MORE

In recognition of the impacts of the coronavirus, the direction provided by government officials at every level, and the concern of our customers and employees, we have temporarily closed all of our retail operations open to the public. This means that the near century of uninterrupted direct sale of See’s candy has now been paused. READ MORE

See’s turns 99 this year, and we are proud of our legacy. That legacy includes our employees, our customers and our longstanding mantra of Quality Without Compromise. Those years provide a proven track record, that is longer than most, of operating safely, providing a great product and having a fantastic workforce with years of dedication to you, our customers. READ MORE
