A ”Pawn Stars” spin-off could be brewing as Chumlee's sweet business venture – a candy shop – is coming soon. Technically, Chumlee's Candy on the Boulevard was scheduled to open a few weeks ago. The opening, however, was delayed for unknown reasons. At this time, there hasn't been any new information released regarding when the candy shop is being opened or why the opening was delayed.

Chumlee is opening a candy shop

Denise Rosch of KSNV News3LV– a news outlet in Las Vegas – managed to catch up to Austin Russell (known better known as Chumlee from ”Pawn Stars”) in order to learn more about this candy store.

According to Eater Las Vegas, those who were hoping to meet Chumlee and other members of the ”Pawn Stars” cast in person will be happy to know this new candy shop is opening for business in the plaza located right across the street from Rick Harrison's Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

Rick opens the plaza

While Harrison also owns the Pawn Plaza, it has yet to be graced with the unimaginable success, and long lines waiting for anyone who wants to get into the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop featured on ”Pawn Stars.” Given the fact that Chumlee has always been considered one of the fan favorites on the show, one can only assume Chumlee's Candy on the Boulevard is destined to have long lines as well.

In addition to Chumlee's Candy on the Boulevard, other new businesses are starting to fill up the empty slots in the Pawn Plaza. One of the newest businesses to the area being Jared's Old Fashioned Hot Dogs & Hamburgers

It is worth noting Chumlee's Candy on the Boulevard is a rather small candy shop. Chumlee told Denise Rosch of KSNV News3LV only a little more than a dozen people would be able to come into the store and look around at a time.

Chumlee's new candy shop in Las Vegas is stocked full of all sorts of vintage and classic candy. Chumlee told Denise this candy store was his chance to give back to the community. He also noted that Bottle Caps were his favorite candy that could be found stocked on the shelves. The ”Pawn Stars” star also joked about how it was a good thing the Bottle Caps were sealed. Otherwise, he would have likely consumed all of them before the store even had a chance to open.

Only 50 percent of new businesses survive

Whether or not Chumlee's new candy store will be a success is something only the “Pawn Stars” star himself can decide. As Eater Las Vegas discovered last year, merely being a new business in Pawn Plaza – owned by Rick Harrison – wasn't enough to guarantee a business would be successful.

Harrison had received a lot of backlash for the new ventures in the Pawn Plaza that didn't last for very long before closing down. Rick pointed out the fact that he was nothing more than a landlord.

While he believed he went above and beyond for the businesses opening within his retail plaza, it was up to the owners of the businesses to find a way to be successful enough to stay in business. Rick also noted that only about 50 percent of new businesses can survive past the first year. So, he has roughly a 50/50 chance of making it as a Candy Store Owner.

Those who follow all things ”Pawn Stars” and Chumlee know the star hasn't had a very easy ride over the last few years. Recently, Chumlee had to plead guilty to drug-related charges. Chumlee was also the victim of a death hoax. What was bizarre was the fact that while "Chumlee death" was currently trending on Google at the time, there wasn't an actual death hoax floating around.

In fact, it was three years before March 2014 when the member of the ”Pawn Stars” cast was the victim of a death hoax. The death hoax claimed Chumlee had died of a heart attack at the age of 21. The story picked up a lot of steam on social media before it was eventually debunked as Chumlee was confirmed to be alive and well.
