The Mayor of Uranus is excited to announce the location of our newest Fudge Factory and General Store!
It's time to spread Uranus even wider!
Buckle Up tight, we are launching Uranus directly into Richmond Indiana
The History of Uranus
We opened the original Uranus Fudge Factory and General Store in Missouri in 2015.
After several years of successfully packing the fudge of millions of our citizens, Uranus expanded our #2 into Anderson Indiana in 2022....at exit 222.2.....on 1-69, no less. (By the way, the #2 is very important in Uranus)
In 2023, we were lucky to find a fabulous new location in Richmond Indiana/Cedar Springs Ohio (the property is in both states) on National Road 40 and Interstate 70. We are currently finalizing the purchase and will start construction January 2024.
We plan to open by early summer 2024.
This location will be our largest to date at 15,000 square feet in our main building and will also have 10 fuel pumps (for 20 stations), our homade super-premium (14% butterfat) Ice cream and a hole bunch more attractions/businesses to be announced soon.
Our intial plan is to get the Fudge Factory/General Store and Ice Cream open first in late spring/early summer and then get the fuel pumps open by mid/late summer
Please follow our Facebook Pages or TikTok to stay up to date on our progress.
Here are a few FAQs we know will be asked soon, but if you have other questions, please send an email to
How Many Staff Will Uranus Employee?
By the end of 2024, we will employee approx 100 crew members in Richmond at our #3 location, bringing our total of fudge packers to almost 250 people in all 3 locations
We offer very competitive wages and benefits for all the staff in Uranus, this includes health care, dental/vision, matching 401K, vacation and sick days.
How Many New Business and Attraction will you be bringing to Richmond?
We are starting with our world famous Fudge Factory and General Store, Ice Cream Shoppe and, for the 1st time, Fuel Pumps.
We are purchasing a few of the buildings of the former New Creations School site including the large church building, The large house and the 2 dormitories and approx 6 acres on the Ohio side, as well
No, we did not buy the entire property, nor all the buildings. We purchased what we needed.
Yes, the Cross is part of what we are purchasing.
We are also moving our online/wholesale distribution facility from Missouri to our new location in summer of 2024
In our #2 location (Anderson Indiana) we are currently building a new Mini-Golf course, similar to our Mini-golf in our #1 location in Missouri
We will probably build a new mini-golf in our #3 in 2025 or 2026
In Missouri, we are currently building a couple new visitor "experiences" including the Uranus Mining Co and a top-secret creation called "Uranus City Hall".
We, in Missouri, are also in the final design stages for 2 new food concepts we will be building starting in 2024; The Uranus Fried Chicken Co. and The Uranus Coffee Co.
At our #2, the Mayor can't decide between "Weiners, Weiners, Weiners" or "The Uranus Sausage Co." for the name of that new eatery in Uranus LOL
We will wait a couple years before we add a lot of new things at our #3, as we need to learn what the local citizens are wanting us to build
We will also bring in and build some very eye catching attractions that will bring in lots of visitors to the community. Our main sign in Missouri has 1,920 feet of neon, as an example.
One thing we know for sure, whatever we put in Uranus, it will be a LOT of fun :-)
What will Uranus do with the Cross and the bricks?
We plan to clean up and restore the area around Cross, re-light it and then give all the praise and glory to God and his son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
We are also leaving all of the bricks that everyone bought to help build the Cross in the pathways
The wood statue by the Cross is coming inside so it doesn't rot away !
