Sweet Pete’s ‘not closing’ as the building it occupies is marketed for sale

Candy company co-owner Allison Behringer said whether it stays or relocates will depend on the buyer.

Jacksonville-based Sweet Pete’s intends to stay in business whether or not the candy company remains in the historic Downtown building it occupies. 

The building at 400 N. Hogan St., owned by Sweet Pete’s partner Marcus Lemonis, is listed for sale at $2.5 million.

“Whether we stay or relocate” depends on the buyer, said Allison Behringer, a partner in the venture with her husband and business founder, Peter Behringer.

“We’re not closing either way,” she said.

Behringer said they “are still on great terms” with Lemonis,  star of the reality TV series “The Profit.” He bought into the business, then based in Springfield, and acquired the building in 2014.

Hybridge, a Tampa-based real estate company, is marketing the 110-year-old historic Seminole Building for sale at $2.5 million to an investor or owner-user.
