The Sweet Candy Company Building is Stop 54 on the Salt Lake City self-guided historc tour. The interpretive plaque reads:Sweet Candy Company Building
The Sweet Candy Compnay produced mouth-watering confections in this building from 1911 to 1998. Leon Sweet founded the company in Portland, Oregon, in 1892. He moved to Utah in 1900 and constructed this building in 1911. The Sweet Candy Company produced a variety of confections, including taffy, jelly beans, chocolates, lemon drops, and rock candy. The simple, functional design of the Sweet Candy Company Building incorporates modest details on the pilasters dividing the bays and a dentil molding atop the fourth story windows. The large windows ensure plenty of light reaches the interior of the building. The southern four bays of the building were added in the 1920s.
