A Chat with Frank Glaser, president/owner, James’ and Fralinger’s Salt Water Taffy
© Profile of Success, Catalog Success magazine, 2007
Catalog Success: When was the catalog established?
Frank Glaser: James’ and Fralingers are two of the oldest candy companies in the United States. Both of them were started in the 1880s on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Both claim to be the originators of salt water taffy. But the only similar is me. We still market them differently. We keep the look of the two companies separate, and we still use different formulas for the candies. They are different products, we just put them together in our catalog. I own both companies.
