CERRETA
CANDY CO.
Cerreta's is a family owned chocolate factory in the heart of downtown
Glendale in Arizona. We make custom gourmet chocolate that will rock your
world. Get some. Cerreta.com.

Cerreta's was founded 40 years ago, by Jim Cerreta, Sr. who learned candy
making in his father-in-law’s factory in Ohio. Jim passed the trade to his entire
family.

Today three of Jim’s sons are actively involved in every aspect of the candy
business.

Joe oversees production of the cream centers, where he combines modern
methods with old fashion candy making techniques.
Jerry is the chocolate man. He covers the caramels and cream centers made
by his brothers with the robust chocolate covering that makes Cerreta’s
chocolate so distinctive.

Sales to the grocery and retail trade, running of the in-house store, mail-order
operations and overseeing the web site are handled by Joner.

Even the wives get into the act. Joe’s wife Marisa gives daily tours to the
public, and her enthusiasm is contagious!

Marisa & Joe’s sons work in the factory in the summer. These two boys
represent Cerreta’s fourth generation of candy makers.
