Sanders Chocolates was founded by Fred Sanders on June 17, 1875 when he opened a candy store on Woodward Avenue at Gratiot in downtown Detroit. . More than a century later, there were more than 57 stores in the Great Lakes Region alone, selling candy, fudge toppings, and baked goods, as well as light lunches and an assortment of desserts at fountain counters, including Ice Cream Sodas, Sundaes and Hot Fudge Cream Puffs. Sanders soon became one of the Midwest’s most legendary confection makers and now you can order these famous goodies straight to your door.
