Woody Candy Company is the oldest candy manufacturer in Oklahoma. The candy company was founded in 1927 by Lucille and Claude Woody Sr. in Oklahoma City. Woody Candy Company has been family-owned and operated since its inception, passing from the founding generation to Claude Woody, Jr. in 1983. Claude Jr. ran the company for more than 30 years, and painted the fine portrait of his father that still adorns our Oklahoma City candy shop.

In February 2014, Bill and Elaine Jackson along with son Brian took the reins at Woody Candy Company.

With Claude, Jr. now acting as President Emeritus, the company has welcomed Brian Jackson, as its new leader. A former logistics officer in the U.S. Navy, Brian is the third generation of veterans to head Woody Candy Company.

With the new leadership, the principles that have guided Woody Candy Company since 1927 remain the same. Quality, freshness, and making the best candy possible remain our top priorities.
