There is something about chocolate. Its scent has the ability to transport you to another time, its taste sparks memories long forgotten. So many traditions are infused with chocolate, so many memories are made sweeter by it. It is this very timeless essence of chocolate that is captured by PMG Chocolatier and our handmade chocolates.
PMG Chocolatier began making gourmet chocolate confections in 2010, and our existing customers have been enjoying these great confections for the last 13 years. The roots of our owner stretch back decades, and in some ways, even centuries. PMG Chocolatier is owned by Perry Macheras, Nephew of Charles Gorant, who was considered by many to be the Godfather of chocolate in Northeast Ohio when he and his brother Sam created Gorant Candies back in 1949. The Gorant family name became synonymous with chocolate and the latest innovations in candy making.
During his youth, Perry would often visit his Uncle Charlie from his home in Lexington, Virginia, learning a bit about chocolate making with each journey. During his many visits over the years, he worked along side them in the candy kitchen, where he started developing his own palate and ideas. In the 1980s, Perry's passion evolved into a career and he worked alongside his Uncles, to help grow the enterprise and in particular, the engineering and development of the retail side of the business.
In 1987, Charles Gorant decided to sell the business and Perry shortly thereafter purchased several of the Gorant/Hallmark stores. He has successfully maintained the Gorant Family name to this day.
In 2010, Perry cultivated a personal dream, and that was to have his own candy kitchen in order to unlock the rich traditions of his family by developing his own chocolate recipes utilizing the original chocolate that Gorant Candies was founded upon.
