By NICOLE KOCHENSPARGER, Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce

The Port Clinton Chamber and Main Street Port held a ribbon cutting celebration for the grand opening of the Port Clinton Candy Company, located at 130 E 2nd St. in historic downtown. Owners, Lisa and Joe Kuzma were on hand to cut the ceremonial ribbon and officially opened their doors following.

“A few years ago my husband, Joe Kuzma, and I decided to leave the large suburb life. We wanted to enjoy our Great Lake and be part of the wonderful city of Port Clinton, which we had visited for many years.  We are now blessed to call Port Clinton our home. The idea to open a candy store in Port Clinton started long before moving, feeling that this is something the downtown area was missing. Less than two years after our official move, the dream has become a reality,” Lisa said.
