Q: What's the story behind your business, and how did you get started?
A: We are fourth generation chocolatiers at Eagle Family Candy Co LLC. We take pride in doing everything the old fashion way. My great grandfather started making Candies and selling them door to door in 1912. He opened up the first Eagles and from there my grandfather opened the one we currently reside in in 1946. My father took over in 1986 and retired in 2012. That's when my husband and I took over, in August 2012, and opened up Eagle Family Candy Co LLC. Our machinery dates back to the late 1940s!
Q: What makes your products unique?
A: We are unique because we like to use the same recipes that are over a hundred years old and do it all by hand!
