Colonial Candies: Sweet spot by the highway

Bolton – The gracious white colonial, majestic pillars flanking its front entrance, is tucked into the bend of a road cradled by the highway, and has been a familiar landmark for travelers on I-495 for many years.

Richard Hebert said that he and his wife, Grace, selected the location for their business, Colonial Candies, with just that reason in mind: visibility and easy access from the highway. In the late 1970s, the Heberts moved their candy company, family-run since 1917, from Worcester to its current location at 47 Sugar Road, directly off exit 27 in Bolton. There they constructed the impressive building, with its traditional post and beam structural elements, to house the business.
