This is the first in a series of posts spotlighting Arizona businesses that share their products with Sibley's West, as part of the "Small Business Boost" award efforts of 3TV/CBS 5, BNC National Bank, the Arizona Small Business Association and Cox Business.
When Sibley's West opened in December 2010, it featured items from 55 Arizona artists and small businesses.
One of our first calls for products was to Cerreta's Candy Co., the landmark chocolate producer in Glendale.
We knew that people in the Valley and visitors to Arizona would love Cerreta's unique products, like French mint truffles, pieces of chocolate in western shapes, and their unique pecan "Camelback" bars.
And they do much more than chocolate -- brittles, caramels, fudge and popcorn.
Cerreta Candy Co. is a family-owned business founded in 1968 by Jim Cerreta, Sr.
Jim learned the art of candy production in his father-in-law’s factory in Canton, Ohio. He then passed the skill on to his children and grandchildren.
Four generations of the candy business now oversee production and operations of our delightful chocolates and candy products. They are described on the company's About Us page.
Cerreta's celebrated its 50th anniversary last October. Here's a video that Jaime Cerreta produced for 3TV AZ Family:
Thank you for letting Sibley's West share your treats with our guests!
