TAMKO CEO to acquire Joplin's "The Candy House"

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Debra and David Humphreys (TAMKO’s CEO) have signed a letter of intent to purchase the assets of The Candy House from owners Terry and Pat Hicklin with a goal of continuing and perhaps even expanding The Candy House business.

"We are truly honored to have the opportunity to continue the tradition of The Candy

House, which has been a part of the Joplin community experience for decades,” David Humphreys said. “Like TAMKO, The Candy House will continue to be family-owned and operated here in Joplin. My memories include the excitement as a kid getting candy with my grandmother and then as an adult with my own kids on special occasions,” Humphreys said. “Kids of all ages have grown up with the treats from The

Candy House and we look forward to continuing that kind of fun.”

“The Hicklins have done a wonderful job growing The Candy House name and business not only in Joplin but in the four-state area. We look forward to adding our efforts for continued growth and hope to add additional jobs as we consider expansion of The Candy House operations.” Business will continue with minimal disruption at the downtown Joplin location.
