Malley’s Chocolates

Cleveland, OH

Sweet Spot: Peanut Butter Buckeyes, of course.

Life Story

23 locations. Four ice cream parlors. Three generations. Six siblings. For Malley’s, it all adds up to a remarkable success story. The company was founded in 1935 by grandfather Mike whose original recipes are still at the heart of the business. In the second generation, Adele, along with her late husband Bill, brought a creative flair to the company’s merchandising, designing the brand’s characteristic pink and green color scheme and adding such unexpected features as an in-store carousel. The third generation has focused on growing the Malley’s brand and strengthening its ties to the communities it serves while remaining intently focused on product quality, consistency and customer satisfaction

Why Peter’s?

“The traditional crumb method of production Peter’s uses, which gives the chocolate its unique milk and caramel flavor allows Malley’s to create a higher quality and decadent finish to our line of confections.”

Above & Beyond: Doing well by doing good.

A special point of pride for Malley’s is the success of its fundraising arm. For more than 50 years, the business has been closely associated with some of Ohio’s most beloved institutions, including local schools, community groups, and charities, providing custom-designed fundraising programs to aide a number of diverse causes.

Words of Wisdom

“Learn the craft and science behind fine chocolates and confections. Confectionery involves a few basic ingredients, but it is how those ingredients are handled that makes your confections unique.”
