Join us on a plant tour and tasting (please, let there be a tasting!!) of Fascia's Chocolates.
In 1964, John Fascia was working as an electronic technician with the Bristol Company. His wife, Helen, was pregnant with their first daughter, Louise. John had been roasting nuts and selling them at his work to supplement their income. In order to increase sales, they had to find something new. The answer was obvious: chocolate. Because, as John likes to say, “Everybody loves chocolate.”
For the next several decades and many changes, including moving to a few Waterbury locations, Fascia’s has continued to be a destination and tradition for our loyal customers.
Fascia’s Chocolates is still family owned and operated by the originating members and continuing generation of the Fascia Family. We still make all products in-house and in small batches to ensure the highest quality and freshness possible.
Carmen Romeo, President of Fascia, married Fascia daughter Louise in 1996 and, while being in the family really means being part of the business, he did not officially join Fascia’s Chocolates until 2009. As an engineer, he loves the science behind chocolate and enjoys educating people about all things chocolate through all the tours and events at Fascia’s.
