Since our humble beginnings in 1964, Fascia’s Chocolates has been dedicated to making high quality, handcrafted confections. The Fascia Family has always had a passion for chocolate. John and Helen began making chocolate in their basement as a hobby, and the business slowly grew from there. Check out our detailed History
We use time-honored traditions to make our chocolate. Stirring in a copper kettle and cooling on a marble slab, these methods may seem quaint, but we feel they are important to the finished product. Everything is made by hand and in-house to ensure the highest quality and taste.
At Fascia’s everything is about family. We are still family owned and operated by originating members and continuing generation of the Fascia Family. Our family is also made up of our dedicated staff and our loyal customers. We invite you to become part of the Fascia family and create your own tradition.
We designed our factory to provide the public with a unique Chocolate Experience and tour, letting you see how we make our confections while learning the history of chocolate and Make-Your-Own chocolate bar. We also offer birthday parties and other special events and our partnership with the Naugatuck Railroad offers a one-of-a-kind experience riding the vintage train with a stop at our shop.
