About Philadelphia Candies
Philadelphia Candies® History - American Made, Family Owned
In 1919, in western Pennsylvania's Shenango Valley, three Macris brothers, Steve, Jim and Louis, immigrated from Greece and started a small chocolate company. They named their new business Philadelphia Candies because it means "Candies made with brotherly love" in the Greek language. Today, Philadelphia Candies is still operated by the Macris family in Hermitage, PA with the same commitment to excellence as our founders. Taste our fine products and you will enjoy the quality and manufacturing expertise we put into every bite. The finest ingredients from around the world combined with our rich chocolate create an outstanding delicacy.
Philadelphia Candies operates retail store locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio. We are proud to employ more than 50 people at our 30,000 sq. ft. chocolate manufacturing facility in Hermitage, PA.
