The busi­ness was found­ed in 1969 by Don Mem­mer, a pro­fes­sion­al­ly trained can­dy mak­er. In 2000, Bill & Pam Hart­ley pur­chased Joy Lyn’s and became the fourth own­ers of the busi­ness. Each own­er has served as a tutor/​mentor to the next, pass­ing on and teach­ing recipes and tech­niques. The pop­u­lar­i­ty of the busi­ness grew along with the types of can­dies offered. 

In Octo­ber 2018, Pam & Bill proud­ly sold the busi­ness to their son, Glenn, and his wife, Jody, on 10/10/2018.

Sad­ly, all of the Hart­ley’s homes and can­dy shop were lost. Short­ly after the fire, n exist­ing build­ing in Par­adise was pur­chased and painstak­ing­ly ren­o­vat­ed to begin the his­to­ry of HEAV­EN­LY CAN­DIES MADE IN PAR­ADISE once again. On Octo­ber 1, 2020, a new chap­ter and ver­sion of Joy Lyn’s Can­dies began as Glenn and Jody reopened Joy Lyn’s at its new location.
