Shannon’s Kandy Kitchen

For over 52 years, the three generation Shannon family continues to manufacture fine chocolates for the local communities. In 1962, the business was founded by Ruth Shannon. The business was three generationsoriginally called Shannon’s Homemade Candies. The basement of the family home in Jackson Township became the kitchen for all candy production. In October of 1978, the business had out grown the family home and was re located to Mercer, PA. A former gas station was re modeled to the present state to accommodate the growing business. At this time, the name was changed to Shannon’s Kandy Kitchen. Since the chocolates were no longer manufactured in the home, the homemade candies portion of the name was dropped. The “K” in Kandy is to represent the family joke that no one is able to spell well and the Kitchen portion is to remember the humble beginnings of starting in the family home. In 2001, Ruth retired and her son, Larry, and his wife, Debbie, took over the business. Through these years, the business had continued to prosper and Debbie opened the second location in Slippery Rock, PA in KANDY 53212007. In 2014, their daughter, Amanda, opened the third location in Grove City, PA.
The Shannon family takes pride in being able to deliver a fresh product using family recipes to the public. Shannon’s has a variety of roasted nuts and centers made from scratch covered in milk or dark chocolate, in addition to, molded chocolate items and custom gift baskets all year. During the holidays, a variety of molded items are added and fresh chocolate covered strawberries are available for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day and Sweetest Day.
