Parkside Candy has been a part of Buffalo’s history since the company was founded in 1927. The original store was located at Main and W. Oakwood, until they built a manufacturing plant and opened a store at its current location, 3208 Main Street.Today, when customers walk through the double glass doors they are instantly returned to a pre-World War II glamorous candy shoppe and ice cream parlor. Two families have run the business, the Kaisers and Phil Buffamonte. In 1983, Parkside Candy made its silver screen debut in the film “The Natural”, starring Robert Redford and Glenn Close.
