Dynamic Confections, co-owned by Taz Murray and Dave Taiclet, collected $2 million from Park City private equity company Dolphin Capital to expand its product line and candy brands. Dynamic, a privately owned wholesale candy manufacturer, now owns companies such as Mrs. Fields Decadent Chocolates, Hallmark Chocolatier and Kencraft.
“We’re looking to sell more high-end regional brands like House of Brussels, Kencraft and Bogdon to destination retailers like Williams-Sonoma and department store chains like Macy’s. We’re also planning to buy more candy brands and expand our product lines,” said Murray, Dynamic Confections ceo and president.
