"He's gotten his Grandma to come see him, a lot of our number one customers have come to support him,” said AJ. “This lady brought in a roll of quarters and spent all of the quarters on candy. It's been great, man, it's been unbelievable."

Parker's Candy Stand currently sells M and M's and Skittles, but they hope to expand to candy machines around the city.
