Patterson Family Chocolates started with Ed Patterson discovering a secret family recipe of dark and milk chocolates. He then connected with the confectionery association and collaborated with an American made truffle manufacturer to make European-style, gourmet, hand-made truffles to the recipe specifications.
On July 4th, 2003, Patterson Family Chocolates was launched and joined the Newport County Chamber of Commerce in Rhode Island, and it was relayed to Taylor Patterson, age 4 and Masen Patterson, age 2, that they have a chocolate company.
Since then, Patterson Family Chocolates has grown and moved from Rhode Island to Maine to Connecticut. Taylor and Masen have grown-up with chocolate culture as part of their family values. The whole family would go to chocolate events in the community, as well as at their schools, and hand out samples of their dark golden chocolates. Kindness, friendship and selflessness was instilled as keys to being successful in family and business.
Today, Taylor and Masen are in college and are now making their mark within Patterson Family Chocolates LLC. Ed Patterson welcomes their natural enthusiasm as they bring their energy, intelligence and passion to the company. Mostly, the family values of the high responsibility of being a steward to the community, by delivering a new American chocolate culture of giving back to the community, has fostered a new chocolate generation.
Chocolate is a pure and natural reflection of the heart. Chocolate personifies our humanity. Just say the word “chocolate” to a 2 month old and a 102 year old and smiles arise from ear-to-ear. We believe in spreading these humanitarian “chocolate smiles” by providing the highest craft of truffles and elegant presentation to all we serve. Everyone has a piece of royalty inside, and our chocolates help light their special hearts.
Patterson Family Chocolates LLC Mission is to provide chocolates to the community. We believe in helping others first and sharing first to build friendship, warmth and empathy. For example, we support our active military and veteran families, certain non-profit causes, the arts and humanitarian causes that help and heal the community. Chocolates have positive healing qualities and we’re ready to help when we can.
