Cerreta’s Candy Co., a Family Tradition The Cerreta Candy Company is a family owned business, founded in 1968, by Jim Cerreta, Sr. who learned candy making in his father-in-law’s factory in Canton, Ohio. Jim passed the trade to his entire family. Today four of Jim’s children 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. The Events Coordinator is Jennifer, Jim’s youngest daughter, she Attracts potential customers by answering product and service questions related to events and holidays; and is the creator of the 1 oz custom bars. Even the wives get into the act. Joe’s wife Marisa gives daily tours to the public, and her enthusiasm is contagious! There are fourth generation chocolate makers at the factory as well, Tony Cerreta helps with the chocolate operations and production, and Candi Cerreta helps with Media Arts and Michaela Cerreta helps out with customer service and production. Jim and Beverly Cerreta have 19 great grandchildren who will potentially carry out the tradition of chocolate making. It’s this deep family involvement and their time honored authentic production methods which ensure the highest possible quality and homemade taste of every piece of Cerreta Candy from the caramels to the chocolates.
