Krantz moved the Confectionery to 126-30 State Street in 1881. Very little changed until the building was remodeled in the 1890s and electric fixtures replaced the gaslights. He opened a second at 76-78 State Street, Chicago.
Although only pastries, ice cream, candies and beverages were served, Mr. Krantz's fame continued over the years as he continually introduced the very latest creations made by highly specialized candy artists from Europe.
