Rocket Fizz was founded in 2007 by Robert Powells and Ryan Morgan in Camarillo, California. The pair wanted to reestablish some of the older brands of candies from the 50’s and 60’s, as well as introduce a variety of flavored sodas. Rocket Fizz is a franchised operation that specializes in candy, gum, and flavored sodas.
Although stores are franchised, the company also sells their uniquely flavored sodas to vendors such as supermarkets and stop and go stores, such as Seven-11. Some of the best selling soda flavors are bacon, dog drool, buffalo wing, and ranch dressing. The company offers 430 flavors of soda, as well as thousands of types of candy.
Rocket Fizz currently has 118 locations in 22 states. The company states that they are the largest candy and soda shop franchise in the U.S. Rocket Fizz was featured on the popular CBS program Undercover Boss in January of 2016.
