Swanton High School accounting students recently were invited to the Spangler Candies Corp. by CFO Matt Dixon for a tour of the manufacturing and inventory operations.

Students were shown the process of the Dum Dum lollipop line and the candy cane line from a cost/efficiency perspective, and how the investment in certain technologies not only pay for themselves over time, they limit waste for a cleaner environment.

Spangler Candies is the leading producer of lollipops and candy canes in the country. Spangler’s produce 12-13 million Dum Dum’s per day, and export to 54 different countries.

Swanton Accounting is a program enrolled through College Credit plus initiative, and is funded through the Penta Career Center. Students are receiving college accounting credits through their high school course work.
