I first started Prides Crossing Confections, I rented a cute little
building not far from the local train depot. I had plenty of room
to cook the fudge, spread the turtles out on a marble table and
display all my hand made chocolates. The picture of that nearby
train station was always printed on my candy boxes.
As the years went by, more and more people wanted my candy! That
was great! But my tiny little store became overcrowded with boxes,
ingredients, candy and customers who sometimes had to wait outside
the door! For awhile, I moved my production to another building.
But that wasnt ideal. I think it is nice to make the candy
right where you sell it. It is also nice to see my customers, chat
with them and hear how much they enjoy all my hard work.
many times I thought about that train station down the street! Maybe
it comes from playing with model railroads as a boy. Maybe it is
because the station represents a time when people took the train
to Prides Crossing to enjoy the beach, a quieter place and maybe
even some chocolate treats. So, when I had the chance to move my
whole operation to that station, I couldnt resist!
If you havent had a chance to visit us at our new location,
please come by! Not that much has changed. I still work hard, I
still make the same delicious chocolates and I still enjoy seeing
