Our Story

It all began with a humble bridge table, a trusty microwave, and a crock pot. However, in no time, a simple hobby ignited Fran Edley's desire to carve out something uniquely her own.

On March 1, 1995, Sugar Plum Chocolates opened its first store in Northeast Pennsylvania, marking the inception of a remarkable journey. The mission was clear: to craft a candy business dedicated to spreading joy, one delectable bite at a time. Fran, alongside her son Neil, founded the company with an unwavering commitment to quality, exceptional service, and unbeatable value. This dedication allowed them to rapidly expand their local presence. In 1996, with the launch of their first website, Sugar Plum Chocolates took a giant leap toward reaching a nationwide audience, achieving that goal by 2000.

For over 28 years, the Edley family has delighted clients with their premium chocolate confections, using only the finest ingredients to create irresistible treats. Customers have come to rely on Sugar Plum for marking their most cherished moments.

From the very beginning, their vision centered on being a creative, independent, female-owned business. Their unwavering focus remains crystal clear - to make a positive impact on people's lives by offering high-quality, delicious treats perfect for employee recognition, client appreciation, weddings, birthdays, and a plethora of other special occasions.
