David Bradley Chocolatier.jpg (21854 bytes)

David Bradley Chocolatier has been producing gourmet hand-crafted chocolates for over 45 years. Originally named Sophisticated Chocolates, the business was started by Bob and Marcy Hicks, and Bob’s mother Alma. The family had always loved sharing delicious food and conversation with family and friends. In 1977, when Alma started looking for a business to start, it seemed natural that it would be something food oriented. They all decided that gourmet chocolates and gifts would be an exciting and fun business to run.

Together, Alma, Bob and Marcy worked towards making their dream of creating delicious chocolates to share with family and friends a success. With very little knowledge of how to make chocolate, but trusting their own, and their family and friends tastes, they went about searching for a master Chocolatier who would make their chocolates unique, delicious and memorable. After tasting dozens of chocolate samples from Master Chocolatiers around the world their quest quickly ended after tasting the samples of Master Chocolatier, Pete Machisco’s, handmade chocolates. His fresh handmade chocolates had intense chocolate flavor combined with rich smoothness. They now had their Master Chocolatier and were ready to start making gourmet chocolates and gifts.

The business grew very quickly, and soon Bob and Marcy enlisted the help of their three teenage children Christine, David and Bradley. During the busy holiday season the whole family could be found at their chocolate factory making and packaging chocolates and gifts, sometimes late into the night. With each season and year, Bob and Marcy’s three children became more involved and knowledgeable about the business. 

In 1985 they lost one of the original founders, Alma. Her fiery spirit and enthusiasm for the business continued on with Bob and Marcy's leadership. Over the next 10 years the business continued to thrive with Bob and Marcy’s three children taking on more and more responsibilities and eventually working full time with the family business. 

Today, Bob and Marcy are retired, but still enjoying being involved with the business and the friendships with customers who have been with them for multiple decades. Christine is now running the business and has successfully expanded it into a multi-channel sales operation developing new product lines every year. Employing over 50 New Jersey residents, their hand-made chocolates can be found in their spacious factory store, their website, as well as in many retail and supermarket chains across the East coast including Shop Rite, McCaffrey's, Roche Bros, and Hallmark stores. They also private label for Fortune 500 companies as well as wholesale to over 500 smaller businesses across the country.
