Just Born Quality Confections Statement Concerning Coronavirus
As a third generation family owned business since 1923, the well-being of our associates, community, customers and business partners is of the utmost importance to us.
In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, we are temporarily suspending production at our facilities in Bethlehem and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, effective no later than 3/25/20 at 6:30am through at least 4/7/20. Our PEEPS & Company® Store in Center Valley, Pennsylvania closed 3/17/20 and will remain closed through at least 4/7/20. Most of our office associates have been working remotely since 3/18/20 but now all associates will work from home through at least 4/7/20. All associates will continue to be paid throughout this time period. We will take this opportunity to further clean and sanitize our production facilities, offices and corporate headquarters.
Our internal task force for COVID-19 continues to regularly monitor the domestic and worldwide impact of the virus and is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local and state health and government authorities and the World Health Organization.
All of our PEEPS® have been produced and shipped to retailers for this upcoming Easter season. We do have inventory of MIKE AND IKE®, HOT TAMALES® and GOLDENBERG’S® PEANUT CHEWS® for the short term but may experience out of stocks on several individual items. We will continue to work with our retail partners to ensure that the fans of our brands can continue to enjoy them during this challenging time.
We’ve been proudly making everyone’s favorite candy for over 90 years.
JOIN OUR TEAM
We’re always looking for some great people to join our team. You could be one of them!
Every single associate I’ve worked with has a passion for the industry and a love to help. They really just want to help me. As a new associate, it’s probably one of the easiest transitions I’ve ever been though.
– Operations Associate
Just Born is a wonderful company to work for. Every day is a different challenge. I get to work with peers from all different areas of the company, from manufacturing to purchasing to quality. We all have the same goal, and that is to take care of our customers. There is also volunteering time available so we can give back to the community that Just Born is such a large part of.
– Customer Service Associate
I am proud to call Just Born my employer. Our vision and philosophy focuses on respect, and the important part is that it is actually practiced on a daily basis. Associates are also encouraged to learn and grow. I am currently working on my MBA with the company’s support. Last but not least, what’s not to love about working on fun and iconic candy brands?!
