Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Since 1981, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has become known for its amazing selection of gourmet chocolates, caramel apples and fudge — many made right in the store in one of our famous candy making demonstrations. But did you know that we are the largest chocolate store chain in the United States, listed in Fortune magazine’s America’s 100 Fastest Growing Small Companies and included on Forbes magazine’s America’s 200 Best Small Companies? Plus, we were rated the number one candy franchise by Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 several years in a row. Plus, we now offer co-branding opportunities with CherryBerry Yogurt Bar for a minimal investment!

 

With over three decades of experience in chocolate candy making, operations and marketing, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory provides extensive training and ongoing support that only a seasoned franchise company can offer.

 

Our flexible kiosk, lease-line and full store footprints can be found in high traffic airport terminals, regional malls, street front and resort locations throughout the United States and Canada, with stores in Japan, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. Our visually striking decor features quality fixtures throughout, designed to appeal to today’s progressive shopper.

 

Our chocolates and confections are hand made with only the finest ingredients, shipped fresh from our 52,000 square foot factory located in the charming town of Durango, Colorado on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. In-store caramel apple and fudge cooking demonstrations delight customers while our award-winning fine chocolates in upscale packaging provide gift-giving opportunities.
