TitleBittermans Make Sure Customers 'Have a Sweet Day'
AbstractArticle features Bitterman Family Confections located at 3107 Gillham Road. They have been in business for three generations of their family and are known by their slogan "Have a Sweet Day." Marilyn Bitterman is credited with starting the group's first retail store located at 31st and Oak. Leslie Bitterman got the first account in a Hallmark Card store, and that remains a mainstay in the business today. "Today, the Bittermans said, more than half of their business involves chocolate, with the remainder various types of hard and soft candies, cookies and nuts. They carry as many as 900 products, depending on the season." The article states that they were the first to introduce Jelly Belly candies to this area. Also mentioned is the fact that they have hired many Muslim immigrants and have a room set aside in the warehouse for them to pray.
