Gourmet Chocolate Business
How Branson’s Chocolates got started…
Deena Branson (owner/Confectioner) had worked at a popular downtown chocolate business (Ashland Fudge Co.) for 10 years, for three sets of owners; she was in charge of the staff and inventory when she stepped away for 3 years. Her husband came home one day saying “Did you know that Ashland Fudge Co. closed”. At that moment Deena knew they could not let the wonderful recipes and production equipment get lost. December 2005 they started Branson’s Chocolates. November 2014 they moved the business in order to have their own retail space. Now they make Chocolates, Truffles, Turtles, English Toffee, Chocolate and Caramel Sauce, Chocolate Bars and much more. Everything is handmade and hand wrapped using some very old and new recipes. They support local farmers and distillers by sourcing ingredients from them. Custom labeling has become their niche which they do for several businesses around Southern Oregon and Northern California.
