When longtime customer Mike Dickinson built an addition to one of his stores, he came to Welch Sign to assist with implementing his vision for creating the "Disneyland of candy stores."  In conjunction with his new building identification sign, Mike wanted a visually stimulating and mobile jelly bean display sign to use in multiple locations for the purpose of offering tasty samples.

To see the BEAN BOOZLED display in action, visit Dickinson's Candy Factory at 42 Old Orchard Street and on the pier in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.
