Sanders & Morley Candy Makers recently signed a lease to occupy additional warehouse space in Macomb Township, Mich.
The 38,361-sq.-ft. facility will provide Sanders with the much-needed space it requires for storage and supplies as sales continue to rapidly increase.

“Throughout every stage of our growth, we’ve made it a priority to partner with other Michigan companies and find Michigan workers whenever possible,” Jefferson says. “It’s a great to feeling to help push the Michigan economy forward and create jobs for more Metro Detroit residents.”
Sanders’ administrative and production operations will remain at the company's main office at 23770 Hall Rd., and its distribution center will remain at 22800 Hall Rd. in Clinton Township, Michigan.
