In 1939, my father, Greek immigrant Chris Mitchell, chose a small corner of Northeast Ohio to open the neighborhood soda fountain and candy store that was to become Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates. There was a movie theater next door, and since this was before the days of in-house concession stands, our sweets emporium became a popular enterprise serving generation after generation of Greater Clevelanders. In 1949, my mother, Penelope, joined my father in the business.
As our regular customers grew up, and began traveling to the four corners of the world, Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates followed. For years, our family has been sending mail order shipments to men and women nostalgic for the freshly blended, hand-dipped chocolates that are the hallmark of Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates. Our Internet Store enables us to continue that tradition by combining new world convenience with old world craftsmanship.
The candies offered in our Internet Store are the same as those we continue to sell over the counter from our kitchen location on Lee Road, in the heart of Cleveland Heights, Ohio. If you were here in town, my mother would hand-weigh your final selection, topping it off to the selected weight with your favorite chocolate or two, before tying your gift box with an elegant ribbon. We strive to provide our extended family of e-commerce customers with the same level of friendly, personal service.
Handcrafted in small, batches for optimum freshness, our delicate combinations of specially blended couvertures, frothy creams, luscious fruits, crunchy nuts, and complex flavorings will delight the chocolate lovers in your life.
