Long Description:

Arthur Hasiotis founded Van Otis Chocolates in Manchester, NH in 1911 as a bakery and confectionery store. Arthur and his daughter Evangeline established the candy operation in 1935, and she operated the business until her death in 1995. And the family tradition continues today under the watchful eyes of brother's in law Dave Quinn and Frank Bettencourt. Over the years, Van Otis Chocolates has gained a national reputation for manufacturing and selling nothing but the finest in hand crafted premium chocolates and other fine candies. Our award winning "Van Otis Swiss Fudge" is relished far and wide and though it is often imitated, it is never equaled!!

Due to record growth, we made a decision in 2002 to move out of our landmark building on Chestnut St. in Manchester, NH. We made the move in order to consolidate all of our production and fulfillment related activities in a 20,000 square foot facility located at 341 Elm Street in Manchester. This facility also houses a new retail store and our 5000 square foot candy kitchen.

In addition to free tours (with samples) conducted about twice a month, Van Otis puts on several specail events during the year, such as the chocolate Luau.
