Our company is constantly growing as more and more people are supporting our brand, but with this growth we can include a great selection of products. Turning our dream of a one stop shop for a party into a reality.  

Our Story

Our family business is a reflection of hard work and wanting to fulfill the American dream, as when our first generation of family members migrated to this country from Sinaloa, Mexico they fled from a world of poverty and a lack of opportunity. So in hopes of wanting a better life not just for themselves but for their kids they fled to the U.S. seeking asylum once approved and soon after granted residency within the state of California in1986.

The owner Jesus Serrano was born in 1980, in the Wrigley area of Long Beach CA. Since an early age being raised in impoverished neighborhood, he understood the harsh reality of the world by having to work at the age of 10helping to provide food for his parents. Although being strong academically in math and literature he had to take up the choice of having to quit going to school at the age of 16 and better help his family situation that he began to work three jobs. Saving every nickel, dime, and penny for three years by living day to day by eating beans, rice, and tortillas living very conservatively until he earned enough money at the age of 20 to invest heavily into a discount store. But due to too much competition around the area he inevitably failed and he had to close his shop losing everything he had invested in his business. Now being only left with $63.32 in his pocket he bought four boxes of mix candy bars from his local wholesale store making his first initial transitions in selling candy to local food vendors.

After thirteen years he soon began to now take part once again in the retail market by first opening his first dulceria (candy store) in Wilmington CA this store would be commonly recognized throughout Wilmington as Dulceria Candyland and two years later go on and open his new brand Dulceria Candy Spots. Now at the age of thirty-nine he has reached financial stability and has garnered a large clientele throughout all of LA.

Now after reaching great heights, he wishes to thank everyone who has continued to shop and support him through all his endeavors. He wishes to show other individuals who grew up in similar conditions as him,“if you strive to reach your goals you must continue to push forward and never give up as everything and anything is possible only if you set your mind to it.Even though there will be obstacles along the way that might stop you just continue to move forward even when you feel like you lost it all just keep moving forward. As success will not come overnight but through hard work and through ambition.”
