It’s a chocolate business built on generations of tradition; Hilliards Chocolates—a leading maker of fine chocolates and specialty candies—is a family-owned business in its fourth generation.
During the early 1900s, Perley and Jessie Hilliard (husband and wife) were introduced to the business of candy through Jessie’s father, Marcellus Parker. The latter owned a candy store in the Boston suburb of Haverhill.
Yet it wouldn’t be until 1919 when Perley Hilliard took a job making candy in the Priscilla Sears factory in the Boston neighborhood of Hyde Park, would he begin to learn first-hand (and hands-on) the craft of making fine chocolate and other sweets.
Perley got the candy bug—and he was not content to work and make candy for someone other than himself; the Hilliards needed to make and sell their own sweets, which
they started doing in 1924 when they and a business partner opened a candy store in the Wollaston section of Quincy.
For generations and through the ups and downs of history, Hilliards Chocolates have been time-tested and considered one of the best confectioners in New England.
