Fritz Company Inc

Based in Newport, Minnesota, Fritz Company Inc which you've probably heard the phrase "Fritzie Fresh", yeah, that candy company. I've been googling on some facts about the company as I'm under the impression it has closed, or parts of it at least. I'm fairly sure they no longer manufacture candy from this facility, but what part of it is still open, that info I could not locate at this time.

If you want more info on the Fritz Co, go here http://www.fritziefresh.com/

It's a site maintained by the granddaughter of the original founder, Joe Fritz.

I left a more personal message on your email.

My Great, Great Uncle owned the business. I went and visited it with my grandpa, Bud Fritz, and my father, Mark Fritz. Also, there's the 200+ year old barn in Newport that my grandpa and great grandpa was raised.
Thanks for the picture! It's on my desktop background!

200+ year old barn? Where abouts is this? I'd certainly try and get a photograph of it....
