About Us

Established in 1982, by the Owens Family, The Dahlonega Fudge Factory is a Family Owned candy business specializing in handmade confections. We are a hometown mainstreet shop that has grown to be enjoyed and appreciated across the globe. Our shop has become a favorite stop for local citizens and visitors to our community. For more than 35 years, we have combined quality ingredients and time-tested recipes to create an outstanding product line.
We are located on Dahlonega’s Historic Square at the Corner of North Park Street and East Main Street, directly across from the Welcome Center.  Our shop has graced this corner since 1984 and our family has grown as Dahlonega has grown.
Our craftspeople make over seventeen varieties of Fudge, along with Caramel, Dahlonega Nuggets, Pralines, Brittles, Divinity and Hand-Dipped Chocolates. Throughout the years, we have remained dedicated to the ideals established in the beginning– the freshest ingredients combined with attention to detail in order to bring to you an unforgettable Candy Delight.
