The City of South Bend is looking for a new way to use the former Claeys Candy building.

The city acquired the former candy factory earlier this year after Claeys Candy moved from its Taylor Street location to help expand its business.

ABC 57 News says the City is hoping someone will come forward with an idea to buy the old building to continue South Bend’s growth.

The City bought the former candy factory for around $450,000, and now the City’s Redevelopment Commission is requesting proposals from developers.

Common Councilman Troy Warner says the building has good potential to be a brewery, pub or restaurant.
