Downtown Sweet Pete's Building Is Up For Sale Following MLG Restaurant Closing

Downtown’s historic Sweet Pete’s building at 400 N. Hogan St. is for sale.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports while the MLG restaurant inside recently closed, the candy business remains open.

The three-story structure is designed as a candy-store wonderland and is anchored by the Jacksonville-based Sweet Pete’s candy company.

Sweet Pete's partner Allison Behringer said Friday the business would know more about its plans when a buyer emerges.

“We have a lot of different options,” she said. “We will wait to see if we negotiate a lease to stay or if we relocate.” She said business is good.
