Mississauga, ON — The Allan Candy Company Limited announced today the establishment of the company’s new corporate headquarters, located at 3 Robert Speck Parkway, Suite 250 (“Sweet 250”) in Mississauga, Ontario.

It needed to be close to our major customers, in a location that was convenient for our employees, and it had to be in close proximity to major highways and local amenities. We kept our focus on a modern facility to give us ample opportunity to provide an inspiring work environment and we are thrilled to have found everything we were looking for at 3 Robert Speck Parkway in Mississauga.”
