How did you start your business?
Mom's homemade toffee was always a special treat for Mark Graves growing up in his family home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In 2006, after years of perfecting her secret family recipe, Mark's mother, Karen Graves, decided to turn her favorite hobby into her own home-based business.
That year, Chapel Hill Toffee made its retail debut at A Southern Season, a specialty foods market in the heart of Chapel Hill. In 2008, Mark decided to join his mother in the kitchen and help her take her small business to the next level. Four years later, after marrying a fellow Chapel Hill native, Mark brought his wife, Christy Graves, on board as the newest member of the family business. While Chapel Hill Toffee has quickly expanded to over 400 retail locations with an online store that ships to customers all over the country, our toffee is still lovingly handcrafted in the place where it all began, "The Southern Part of Heaven".
Christy and her husband, Mark, have also added to the lineup of future toffee makers with their little boy that was born just about a year ago. He'll be the cutest little toffee maker ever!
What sets you apart from other businesses in the same category? Why should locals choose your business over your competitors?
We are a local family with our roots planted in Chapel Hill, NC. My mother in law, my husband, and myself still make the toffee by hand and run our company together, just our family! My MIL's pecan and dark chocolate secret recipe is truly addictive!! My husband, Mark, and I are raising the next generation of candy makers! Our son, Griffin was born in June of 2015!
Is there any other information you'd like the readers to know?
