The South Bend Chocolate Company

3300 W. Sample Street

In 1991, Mark founded the SBCC and operated it as a second business. In August 1994, the SBCC incorporated with Mr. and Mrs. Tarner as majority shareholders. We now have 13 company-owned stores in northern Indiana and 4 franchised locations throughout Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. The factory is located at 3300 W. Sample Street in South Bend and occupies 60,000 square feet.

The company got its start making chocolates under a license from the University of Notre Dame. Its first three products were the Domer, Rockne and Nuts for ND. We now produce over 500 items and are the fastest growing chocolate company in the nation.

Very interesting. And it smells so good! The free 20 minutes your is very good. But obviously the quality of the tour depends on the guide.

I liked the tour and the discount chocolate. Wow ok how do I put this with out hurting feelings. The tour guide was very nice we sample lots of candies. It is just if I had to hear how he doesn't like his boss one more time I was going to scream. Yes is was part of what he said on the tour.

The factory was really nice. The tour was good also. 3 stars because the men's bathroom was terrible. Looked like one at a gas station off a freeway. Otherwise very neat place.

This is place is great, but the exhibits are getting kind of old. And the most important thing, the chocolate, is not quite up to par with Swiss standards. Still much better than most American chocolate. They need to up their chocolate game. To be competitive in the future.

Even though they were very near closing, they were very helpful and even gave us a tour. They helped with purchases after hours even. Great staff. Great prices. Highly recommend a visit.
