Abstract:
Lexington's Piedmont Candy Company began as the North Carolina Candy Company in 1919. Edward F. Ebelein was one of the founders. The company went bankrupt during the Depression, but made a comeback. In 1987, Ebelein sold the company to Doug Reid, a family friend who still uses Ebelein's original recipe. Piedmont's signature candy is Red Bird Brand Soft Peppermint Puffs and is marketed in all fifty states.
