Quality Counts

Our gourmet chocolates and confections are American-made with only the finest ingredients and shipped fresh from our factory located in the historic town of Durango, Colorado. Our customers say our handcrafted chocolates have a satisfying richness and when you see it being made in-store, "you just know it's fresh, it tastes better." Our candymakers are constantly innovating with ingredients, flavors and processes to provide you with a premium product to grow your chocolate business.

"Premium chocolates are expected to continue to be a major factor in sector growth, particularly in emerging economies. With premium chocolates carrying higher profit margins, manufacturers are already working to meet market demand from consumers who are influenced by price, packaging, ingredients, exclusivity and provenance, according to Technavio." - Technavio Global Chocolate Market Report 2019-2023


Sweet Moments

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is a unique candy shop franchise opportunity, because at RMCF, it's always been about more than just chocolate, it's about the EXPERIENCE. We value our guests and the best way we do that is by making sure we leave every customer with a smile. As a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory franchisee you'll learn to cook caramel apples and fudge the old fashioned way in full view of the customer using traditional cooking utensils such as copper kettles on gas-fired stoves and marble slab cooling tables. At Chocolate University you'll receive the training you need to make sure you're giving each customer an EXPERIENCE that will bring them back again and again to your gourmet chocolate store.

Nostalgia is a key lever for consumer goods sales, MBLM Agency finds. "Building stronger emotional bonds with consumers doesn't just make marketing sense, it correlates to stronger business performance," says Mario Natarelli, managing partner, MBLM. "Top intimate brands outperformed the top brands in the Fortune 500 and S&P indices in both revenue and profit during the past 10 years."


Adventures in Chocolate

Our factory produces approximately 300 chocolate candies and confectionery products, using proprietary recipes developed by our master candy maker and handed down for decades. These products include an unmatched variety of clusters, caramels, creams, meltaways, peanut butter chocolates, truffles and molded chocolates. In-store, franchisees and staff prepare a wide array of caramel and candy apples, fudge, chocolate-dipped fruit and other treats and confections. We also feature an assortment of beautifully packaged candies in upscale boxes and bags, perfect for gift giving, holiday sharing and special occasions. So whether you need a pick-me-up snack or a decadent gift, we have just the thing to make life a little sweeter.

Providing choice to the consumer continues to be key as the preferences for types of chocolate, cacao percentages, and added flavors or ingredients vary widely across age groups and demographics.
