The Frankford Story

Founded in 1947, Frankford Candy has evolved into the largest marketer of licensed confections and gifts in the United States. Our art of chocolate-making began 70 years ago, primarily as a seasonal business, which manufactured and distributed Chocolate Easter Bunnies and Santas for regional mom and pop corner stores. 

Over the years, we expanded our portfolio of products to include non-chocolate candies such as gummies, lollipop and gift sets and now distribute to all major retailers nationwide. While we are still a family-favorite for the four major holidays, our candy can also be found on shelves everyday, year-round.

Though our Chocolate Bunnies remain some of the most-purchased Chocolate Bunnies in the country, we have added new characters to our line-up. Mickey Mouse, PAW Patrol, Shopkins and Spider-Man are now part of our family, too. For the past 20 years, Frankford has partnered with the most respected companies in the entertainment and food industry to bring their brands into the candy aisle. Our licensing business has enabled consumers to purchase Welch’s Licorice, Disney Easter Baskets, SpongeBob Krabby Patties, M&M Gift Sets, Marvel Candy Canes and lots more confections and gift items from their beloved brands.

Through expansion, our mission and values have remained consistent. We are proud to offer high quality, great-tasting candy that our consumers love, year after year. As a fourth generation, family-owned business, we understand the importance of tradition and the impactful role our products play in the lives of our consumers.

We also understand the importance of you. Yes, you. Our fundamental purpose is to make you smile.  Whether it’s melt-in-your-mouth chocolate or chewy jelly beans, our goal is to bring a touch of sweetness into your busy lives. We hope that through our shared partnership and love of candy we can continue to bring joy to your traditions for many years to come. Stay sweet!
