Richardson Foods, Inc., Canajoharie, N.Y., has acquired Bogdon Candy Co., Kansas City, Mo., from the Dynamic Confections Group. Bogdon is the maker of Reception Stick, a crisp hard candy rolled by hand into thin sticks and dipped almost full-length into bittersweet chocolate, and Mint Double Dips, a spun sugar stick completely dipped in chocolate and wrapped in silver foil.

“Bogdon has a long standing reputation for its unique, high-quality confectionery products, a tradition held in common with Richardson,” says Don Butte, ceo of Richardson. “Bogdon’s success is underscored by its strong growth despite a challenging economy. Bogdon’s products will receive broader exposure under Richardson, and they are an excellent fit with our manufacturing, sales and distributing resources.”

Richardson Foods is a subsidiary of Founders Equity.
