What was just a stark brick wall is turning into a captivating art piece on the front of the Atkinson Candy Companies building located at 1608 West Frank Avenue in Lufkin. The colorful mural is being painted to commemorate their 90 years in operation making amazing candy for everyone to enjoy.

Atkinson Candy Company candy is sold all over the world, but they are proud of their hometown in Lufkin. As we are cruising down Frank street, this will be a welcome addition to see.

For a candy company, the building has always been a little stark. It has had a 50s and 60s industrial vibe. Everyone was ready for something different.

Now that has changed to a whirl of the color wheel and is much more indicative of what they are proudly producing on the inside. We can't wait to share a picture of the completed mural soon.

This should give the executives some pep in their step as they head on to the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago tomorrow.

They will be attending the NAC (National Confectioners Association) Sweets and Snacks Expo there. Safe travels to all that are going and representing a company that makes Lufkin special.
