SweetWorks, Inc. originally began as Niagara Chocolates. Niagara Chocolates has been a family owned and operated candy manufacturer since 1956. Our manufacturing facility, located in Buffalo, New York, makes superb quality confections that are shipped throughout the world.
In 1998, owner Philip Terranova acquired Oak Leaf Confections located in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. The Oak Leaf Confections facility is 148,000 sq. ft. and employs approximately 240 full-time people. Oak Leaf Confections manufactures ball gum, tablet gum, pressed dextrose candy, and jawbreakers.
In 2002, Niagara Chocolates acquired some unique brands and distinctive processing capabilities that effectively reach the national markets. Thus, SweetWorks, Inc. was established as the parent company. The nationally recognized brands acquired include the nostalgic candy coated chocolate Sixlets® and the chocolate covered sticks Ovation®. SweetWorks is a mid-sized company that is recognized by its consumers and customers as a leader among premium chocolate producers.
The goal of SweetWorks is to give customers rich quality products and great customer service, while striving to make the best even better. SweetWorks takes great pride in celebrating over a half-century of providing pleasure, quality and unique products for our consumers worldwide.
