BOLINGBROOK – Ferrara Candy Co. is coming to Bolingbrook in what Crain's Chicago Business called the biggest industrial lease in the Chicago area this year.

Ferrara Candy's products include Lemonheads, Chuckles, Red Hots, Boston Baked Beans and Now and Later. The company merged with Minnesota-based Farley’s & Sathers in 2012.
