Malley's Chocolates was founded by Albert Martin Malley in 1935. Martin had worked in a chocolate store as a boy in Meadville, Pennsylvania and dreamt of one day owning his own store. In 1935, in the middle of the Great Depression, Martin borrowed 500 dollars, and with it, rented a small store and living space for himself and his family on Madison Avenue in Lakewood, Ohio.
Malley's has been in business for over seven decades and has been Cleveland's largest family owned and operated factory since 1935. It is currently a third generation company.
