National Manufacturing Day

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Today is National Manufacturing Day, and one local business is celebrating by preparing toffee for the holiday season.

Enstrom Candies says this time of year is the busiest time for them. Because of the holidays, they are hiring more employees. They're looking to hire about a hundred people.

The candy shop is making more than a million pounds of toffee, along with other treats just for the Holidays alone.

"So we're just here making a little bit of candy, it's coming up on the holiday season, so we're busy trying to make all that holiday candy for our friends and family and everybody that has Enstrom's for their holiday season,” says VP of Sales and Co-Owner Jim Simons.

Local Costco will be selling Enstrom's 40-ounce jars of almond toffee this year.
