The company is based in Fairfield, California, with a second manufacturing facility in North Chicago, Illinois and a distribution center in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

Jelly Belly Candy Company, manufacturer of Jelly Belly jelly beans and a wide range of confections, is a family owned and operated business now in its sixth generation of candy making. The family traces its roots to Gustav Goelitz, who came to the United States in 1866. He built a successful confectionery business: Gustav Goelitz Candy, in Belleville, Illinois. Gustav Goelitz younger brothers, Albert and George, immigrated to America a few years later joining the family business. The Goelitz name developed a reputation for quality confections as the brothers expanded operations and by 1898 were specializing in candy corn and other "buttercream" candies, a new type of candy. The second generation of candy makers moved to North Chicago opening the Goelitz Confectionery Company plant in 1913.
Herman Goelitz, second generation candy maker, moved to the west coast to start his own business, Herman Goelitz Candy Company. The company eventually settled in Oakland, California in 1924. In 1960 Herman Rowland, Sr., fourth generation candy maker, joined the Oakland, California family business. The family decided to expand the company products making jelly beans, Chocolate Dutch Mints«, America"s first gummi bears, and jells. "One of those new products was a small and very flavorful Mini Jelly Bean [developed in 1965]."  The Mini Jelly Bean center was flavored with natural flavoring, an innovate idea, instead of just the outer shell.Source: Wikipedia
