At the River in Ranch Mirage CA

By Lynne Tucker

“They are a family-owned business located in Rancho Mirage, CA. Come on in for a delicious hand dipped homemade Caramel Apples, fresh homemade Fudge, the best Chocolates you can get in the Coachella Valley, fresh dipped Strawberries and much more.”

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is an international franchisor, confectionery manufacturer and retail operator in the United States, the Republic of the Philippines, and the Republic of Panama. The Company is based in the charming historical town of Durango located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains in southwestern Colorado. From its 53,000 square foot factory, the Company manufactures an extensive line of premium chocolate candies and other confectionery products to supply its many franchise locations, delivered fresh by its fleet of refrigerated trucks.

The factory typically produces approximately 300 chocolate candies and other confectionery products, using proprietary recipes developed primarily by its master candy maker. These products include many varieties of clusters, caramels, creams, meltaways, truffles and molded chocolates. Individual stores prepare a variety of caramel and candy apples, fudge, chocolate items and confections in full view of the customer using traditional cooking utensils such as copper kettles on gas-fired stoves and marble slab cooling tables.


In 1985 the Company went public and is now traded on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol “RMCF”.

Sweet Opportunity

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory offers an appealing opportunity, confirmed by the high number of existing franchisees seeking to expand and purchase stock in the Company. “They offer a product that everyone loves, one that brings smiles to faces, spreads goodwill and happiness wherever we are found,” Crail remarks proudly. “I can’t think of many other opportunities that can boast that.” In 1985, Crail took the Company public where it is now found on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol RMCF.

“A great deal has happened over the years,” recounts Crail with a twinkle in his eye. “I never imagined that in my search for a place to raise a family would turn out so sweet!”
