Candy as kids. That makes me remeber back to when I was in the 7th grade. I had started a candy buisness in school so to say. There was a store real close to me,and I would take orders from the kids in classes,go to the store in the morning on the way to the bus stop,buy everyones fix and take it to school. I would then mark up the price on what was bought by 10 cents. Had a real good deal going,candy bars were marked up 25 cents. I would not buy anything but candy,no sodas,cigs or anything like that. Usually came out about 5 bucks richer a day. Then go to the store the next day and buy only what was ordered. A good dealer knows not to dip into your own supply though. I thought about franchise rights,but the school only had room for one "candy man".


BTW, Chick-O-Sticks were the #1 seller.
