Chumlee From
Pawn Stars
Opened Up This
Thanks to his friendly demeanor and the mischief he causes to raise the ire of Rick — something he also did with Rick's late father, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison — Chumlee has become a fan favorite on "Pawn Stars." On top of Chumlee's duties at the shop, "Pawn Stars" occasionally features the sweet gig he has going on the side.
One of the behind-the-scenes things going on with "Pawn Stars" is Chumlee's candy store called Chumlee's Candy on the Blvd., which he opened with his brother, Sage, in 2017. The store, which also has an online presence, sells a variety of traditional candy brands and confections, as well as Chumlee-related merchandise.
The reason Chum and his brother opened the candy store was simple — for the love of candy, naturally, and because it is "fun." Chumlee said he would consider doing a spinoff series featuring his candy store, but only if it involved other "Pawn Stars"-related businesses like Rick's Rollin Smoke BBQ & Tavern, owned, of course, by Rick Harrison.
