February Featured Shop – The Hartville Chocolate Factory

The Hartvhc1ille Chocolate Factory was founded and opened to the Hartville community by Bob Barton in 1986.  The factory was originally started to specialize in making plastic chocolate molds, but soon expanded into a chocolate shop as well.  As of today, the Hartville Chocolate Factory consists of a chocolate-making facility, a custom mold division, a manufacturing plant for chocolate machinery and has expanded into two retail shops within the Hartville area.  Recently, ownership of the Hartville Chocolate Factory was transferred from Bob Barton to Scott Huckestein who has developed “Cocoa Concepts,” where the company headquarters resides.  This new facility features a museum with chocolate tastings and tours, and provides a location for private celebrations, themed events and after-hours corporate gatherings.

The Hartville Chocolate Factory is unique on an international level because they are involved in so many different areas of the chocolate industry.  Besides producing and selling delicious chocolates, we work with large corporations and with small “mom and pop shops.”  We are not worried about our competition, as we are usually
working alongside them to help them succeed!  We reach out to other companies, even those located right down the road, and provide them with molds, machinery, private labeling and any other resources they may need.  We will even sit down with them and help to customize a store floor plan together.  We enjoy helping smaller companies thrive, it’s what we do best and it is what makes our company unique!

On a local level, the Hartville Chocolate Factory is set apart because of our commitment to offer quality products at an affordable price.  When making any of our treats, we use only the best all-natural products.  Our ingredients include: real milk chocolate, dark chocolate, butter, whipping cream, peanut butter, salted nuts, coffee beans and fresh strawberries.  All of our products are made with no artificial flavors or preservatives. hc3 Our peanut clusters are made by hand.  Our amazing fudge and vanilla caramels are cooked up in a large copper kettle right over an open flame.  Even our fresh buckeyes and chocolate-dipped strawberries are individually dipped, by hand.  All of our wonderful chocolates are made with love, the old-fashioned way and still our prices are lower than those found in most quality chocolate stores.

The Hartville MarketPlace location of the Hartville Chocolate Factory offers many benefits for every customer we serve.  With ample parking and handicap accessibility, it makes shopping easy for everyone.  In addition to our sweet treats, we also offer jellies and jams, plush animals and a variety of appetizer and dessert mixes.  The chocolates and candies here are packaged fresh and ready to go for those who are excited to check out the amazing variety of shops at the MarketPlace.  Only footsteps away from our store, shoppers can find fresh deli meats and cheeses, produce, dry goods, jewelry, handbags, home decor, books and more.

We invite you to stop in during your next visit to the Hartville MarketPlace.  We always have plenty of samples and smiles for all of our customers, many of whom can remember visiting our store when they were just children.  We are an inhc4ternational company with small-town values.  Whether you are looking for fine chocolates, delicious candies, chocolate supplies, or just a little bit of nostalgia, we have what you are looking for at the Hartville Chocolate Factory.  On behalf of our twenty company employees and their families, we thank you for your kind support.

About HRM Enterprises

From its 1939 beginning as a livestock auction started by Howard’s father, Sol Miller, to the present-day group of companies that include the Hartville MarketPlace and Flea Market, Hartville Kitchen, Hartville Hardware, Hartville Collectibles, Hartville Kitchen Salad Dressing, Top Advantage Surfaces and Hartville Tool, HRM Enterprises has always been a family-owned and oriented business. 

The business had a very humble beginning, as Sol Miller purchased a two-acre plot on the corner of Market and Edison streets for $400. Sol then utilized the help of many in the community – as well as lumber cut from his father’s farm – to construct a 40-foot-by-80-foot sale barn for less than $1,000. The first sale was held on October 30, 1939, and the total of all livestock sold that day came to $535.

A lunch stand was opened on the second floor of the barn, operated by Sol’s wife, Soloma. The auction grew and prospered, with additions in 1942 and 1947. The mid-40s also marked the beginning of the sale of produce and eggs. Around this time also marked the beginning of the flea market, as Sol started renting spaces to others to sell their merchandise.

In 1952, a grocery store and service station were added. In 1958, upon Sol’s death, his son, Howard Miller, began operating the business for his mother, Soloma. Along with Moses Yoder, Howard began leasing the business from his mother the following year. The grocery was changed to a dry goods and variety store in 1962,which was open until 1966 when he opened the Country Kitchen restaurant in its place. Later in 1966, as Hartville evolved from a rural farm community to a fast-growing suburban area, the livestock auction was closed. In 1976, the egg and produce auction was closed. The next year saw the beginning of another new venture, as the company began to sell its salad dressing to stores across the area.

The new Hartville Kitchen was opened at its present location in 1995, which seats about 400 people in the dining room and 500 in the banquet room.

Howard Miller passed away on May 27, 2001. The name of the parent company was changed from Hartville Auction to HRM Enterprises in his memory. Howard’s son-in-law, Marion Coblentz, began running the flea market in 1980 and saw Howard’s vision to fruition with the opening of the MarketPlace on September 5, 2002. Marion still runs the MarketPlace today. Howard Miller Jr. has been the head of HRM since his father’s passing. A brother, several sisters and their spouses and 13 third-generation family members have helped continue to make the businesses successful.

The Many Benefits Of Goat Milk

Blog Header

Today’s blog post is s guest post from Kathy Jeffers, owner of Pheasant View Dairy Goats, located in the South Wing of the Hartville MarketPlace. Pheasant View Dairy Goats was established in 2007. They always had the dream of starting their own farm and they then wanted to start a business along with it. They began with two dairy goats and their herd is now up to 25 (and still growing!).

Goats may be cute and friendly, but they are also very useful. Female goats produce a creamy milk, rich in vitamins and minerals. It is very beneficial to your body, both inside and out. Listed below are many of the benefits of using this high protein, calcium rich milk.

glass-of-milk-000005523842large-21 (3)

One of the things you can do with goat’s milk is make soaps and lotions. It is a pure natural product with no additives or preservatives in it. It contains lactic acid which strips away dead skin cells and nourishes the new skin underneath. The PH level in the milk is very close to the PH in your body, making it easier to absorb into your skin. The result is a moisturizer that does not wash off and is continually working. Some of the things that goat’s milk can do is help fight acne and also aid in the reduction of wrinkles, just to list a few.

Drinking goat’s milk is just as beneficial. Goat’s milk is closest to human’s milk, making it easier to digest. It is rich in calcium and helps boost the immune system. It has high levels of proteins and essential amino acids.

Whatever the reason for using goat milk you will enjoy the results you receive.
