50th Anniversary Celebration at River Street Sweets

River Street Sweets is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023 with a series of events, including the grand opening of its third Savannah location on Broughton Street, a salute to National Pecan Day, National Pralines Day, and the celebration now continues with a pop-up event at its franchise location in Atlanta, Ga.

This event will feature a live demonstration of how pralines are made, as well as the opportunity to sample fresh pralines. This event is open to the public.

“We are excited to celebrate our 50th anniversary with our fans in Atlanta,” said Jennifer Strickland, co-owner. “The ‘Golden Ticket Sweetstakes,’ which was, of course, inspired by the greatest candy icon of all time, Willy Wonka, has been a huge success so far and there are only a few days left to enter.”

The prize includes a three (3) day/two (2) night trip for the winner and one (1) guest to Savannah, Ga., where the flagship store of River Street Sweets is located.

  • Roundtrip airfare for 2 to Savannah from a major airport near winner’s residence (value up to $1000);
  • Two (2) nights standard hotel accommodations (single room/double occupancy, value up to $750);
  • Dinner for 2 in Savannah (excludes alcohol) (value up to $150);
  • Tour of Savannah for 2 (value up to $100);
  • Tour of the original flagship River Street Sweets store with the owners (value – Priceless).

The Sweetstakes is open to residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are over 21 years of age, except for employees of RSS and RSCK LLC (“Sponsor”) or its franchisees. No purchase is necessary to participate. All guests in stores who scan the QR code at the Pralines Day donation jar for Kids Café  can fill out an entry form (one entry per guest); all online orders on and are automatically entered to win; and all who go to the website link printed on store receipts at participating locations can fill out an entry form (one entry per guest).

“Together, we will make this ‘Sweetstakes’ one to remember – not just for the thrill of a golden victory, but for the knowledge that we are coming together to lift up those less fortunate in our communities across the country. Our family values of hard work, passion, and service are sweeter than any candy, and we look forward to this opportunity to make a difference,” said Tim Strickland, co-owner.
