Company History

More than 85 years of Fannie May - A success story
The first Fannie May retail store was opened by H. Teller Archibald in 1920 at 11 N. LaSalle St. in Chicago. By 1935, there were nearly four dozen retail stores in Illinois and several neighboring states. During World War II, while other companies chose to change their recipes when ingredients were scarce, Fannie May stuck with its exact recipes, making only what it could which often meant closing shops early because no more candy was available - never was the taste of the candy compromised.

Through the years Fannie May developed candies that went on to become favorites that were often the center of many family and holiday traditions. For instance, Fannie May Pixies® were first made in 1946 by hand-pouring caramel over nuts and then placing them on a conveyor belt to be drenched in chocolate. Today, that combination of caramel and crunchy pecans covered in chocolate is one of the company's best sellers. That same commitment to the quality of recipes continues today, with most of the same ingredients coming from the same suppliers for many years now. Quality has always been the driving force behind the making of Fannie May chocolates. They developed this by combining a delicious product, stimulating advertising, elegant packaging and selective distribution. Fannie May's standards of excellence include maintaining their product's high quality by requiring special handling during storage and display. Their growing popularity as a premium quality product is due to their innovative approaches in manufacturing, advertising and packaging. Fannie May stands by all its products and for over 85 years has provided high quality gourmet chocolates with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

In May of 2006 Fannie May joined the 1-800-Flowers.com family of brands. For more than 30 years, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Inc. - "Your Florist of Choice®" - has been providing customers around the world with the freshest flowers and finest selection of plants, gift baskets, gourmet foods, confections and plush stuffed animals perfect for every occasion.
