Malley's Chocolates is known for fine chocolates, exceptional personal service and fair prices. Assisting thousands of charitable and service organizations to raise money for good causes, through the sales of chocolates, is an important part of the Malley's Chocolates way of doing business. Malley's Fundraising program started in 1963. Full-color product guides are created each winter and spring holiday season to support these efforts. Organizations also sell chocolate bars throughout the year to raise funds. The bars have different delicious ingredients.
In 1967 William M. Malley, Sr. became president of Malley's Chocolates.
Bill continued to add more retail stores. He bought a hardware store on Lorain Rd. and converted it into a Malley's Chocolates Shop and Ice Cream Parlor which opened on February 12, 1969. This chocolate shop and ice cream parlor is very unique. Bill wanted to put a Merry-Go-Round in the middle of the store. This revolving Merry-Go-Round is still in existence today.
As sales grew, the chocolate kitchen and factory had to be moved to larger quarters. In October of 1974 the kitchen was moved again.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries were introduced to our customers in 1985. We covered the strawberries with creamy milk chocolate and sold them every weekend, Memorial Day through Labor Day.
By 1990, our delicious chocolates and ice cream concoctions had become so popular that we moved to another larger location with 60,000 square feet to make our chocolates.
Bill Malley, Sr. retired in 1996 and his wife Adele Ryan Malley became president.
Dan Malley had an idea for the Easter Season in 1998. He rented a 16,000 square foot tent which was erected on the East end of our Brookpark factory and store and named it BunnyLand. It was (and still is today at Easter Season) filled with thousands of chocolate rabbits, baskets, Carmallow & Marshmallow eggs, Jelly Beans by the Jillions, etc.
We are now a third generation Chocolate Candy Company.
Adele Ryan Malley retired in February 2003 and Bill & Adele's son Dan Malley became president.
Malley's Chocolates has expanded to 14 retail stores, 4 of them are designed with old fashioned ice cream parlors featuring delicious ice cream concoctions. A 15th retail store has opened at 8111 Rockside Rd., Valley View, Ohio. – less–ZoomInfo
