Then & Now: Cerreta Candy Company

cerreta candy tour

Making Arizona a sweeter place for over 50 years .

It’s the stuff of childhood dreams: working in a chocolate factory. Between the sweet aroma wafting through the air and the ability to sample fresh treats, it’s not hard to see the appeal. Tony Cerreta, vice president of Cerreta Candy Company, can attest to the delicious qualities of this job.

“Being in a chocolate factory all your life is one memorable day after another,” Cerreta says.

Cerreta comes from a long line of confectioners at Cerreta Candy Co., an Arizona staple founded in 1968 by his grandfather, Jim Cerreta Sr. After learning the trade from his father-in-law in Canton, Ohio, Cerreta Sr. moved his wife and eight children to Phoenix. He opened up a shop in the west Valley and began churning out a wide variety of delicacies, like caramels, chocolates and toffees. Now in its 55th year of business, Cerreta Candy Co. remains a family-owned operation, with new generations of Cerretas following in the footsteps of their beloved relatives.

“My cousins and I have fond childhood memories working side by side with our grandpa and uncles,” Cerreta says. “We inherited a love of the chocolate industry.”

Seeing the family bond over the art of candy making inspired the Cerretas to share their passion with the public.

“My grandparents wanted families to come and make their own memories that [we] enjoyed for so many years,” Cerreta says.

After two decades at the original Phoenix location, the family searched for a new venue. The criteria were simple enough: It needed to be large enough to accommodate recreational offerings and provide enough production and retail space for Cerreta’s 100+ products. The company found its perfect match in Historic Downtown Glendale and officially re-opened in 1991. To this day, it hosts guided factory tours and activities five days a week.

Aside from moving, most business aspects have stayed consistent throughout the years. Cerreta Candy Co. continues to use time-honored recipes created by Jim Cerreta Sr. The products are still made by hand using vintage machinery, some of which date back to 1913. And the French Mint, a delectable combination of chocolate and peppermint oil enrobed in a pastel green coating, is a consistent top-selling item.

Also affectionately known as “the green one,” the Cerreta family knew early on that this treat was destined to become a hit. Tony Cerreta recalls hearing of his grandfather bringing a batch home for his grandmother to try, asking for her feedback. He then left the room for a brief moment to change out of his work clothes. By the time his grandfather came back, he was in for quite the surprise.

“There were no samples left,” Cerreta says. “I guess there was nothing to discuss. They were fabulous!”Cerreta Candy Co. is located at 5345 W. Glendale Ave, Glendale, Ariz. 85301. www.cerreta.com , @cerretacandyco

This is really great kids really enjoy doing that. What about an adults go through the tour?

Be safe! You and your school are about to become angels!

I love, Cerreta‘s candies! The partnership you have with the city of Glendale has produced one of the best events at Valentine’s Day. I remember my children who are now in their 40s going with me to the Valentine’s Day event and the best part of the event was the Cerreta‘s candy-making tent. Thank you for what you do with the community that needs you so much.

Sweet Tour and Craft with Cerreta Candy Company

Family-owned Candy Factory, Glendale AZ

Cerreta Candy Company

🍫

We had the opportunity to take the kids to see the magical production of candy of a family-owned candy factory that has been in Arizona for more than 50 years! I remember going on field trips when I was in elementary school and the place looks just as I remember, retro machinery, harvest gold in color and walls coated with murals from another era. Taking my kids to experience something I did back then was memorable. 

They learned how a sea of caramel became wrapped treats, how the cream centers are enrolled in luscious chocolate and the history of chocolate and the family-owned business that's four generations of candy makers strong. 

Tour Activities

After the quick talk tour the kids completed a chocolate Teddy Bear decorating, Pizza To Go-Italian chocolate and the Halloween theme rice crispy Frankenstein.  Cerreta Candy Company   is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and the factory tours are offered Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and masks required. For more information, call 623-930-9000.

Cerreta Candy Company  is a friendly place to visit, just off Glendale Ave and has ample parking alongside the factory site. You will smell the wonderful chocolate as you proceed to the front entrance. Inside, the sales floor is surrounded with chocolate varieties, in blocks, and pieces of different varieties that you can select and put inside the baskets they have there for you. The place is clean, the sales people are polite, happy and more friendly then you could imagine.

Besides learning about the company and the family, you also get to see candy making in action including a replica of the chocolate conveyor in the I Love Lucy series.

If you wish to do the chocolate pizza-making after the tour, I would suggest allowing more time in your itinerary as it would take some time for the chocolate to harden.
