South Bend - 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.

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.

It's a descent place. I didn't know this was an outlet store, but still good. We've been to their regular stores which are nicer of course.

I went here last spring and have visited before. One of my favorite places. The tour is fun and interesting. The gift shop is cool. They also have samples to try and great sales and specials on treats. The staff is consistently friendly and upbeat. What a fun place to work! They will also ship treats to your lived ones.Will definitely visit again!
