History

Halfon Candy Company was founded in 1946 by Izzy Halfon, a robust man with a great love of candy. He began his business by selling confectionaries and bags of locally-made popcorn to movie theaters. As time progressed, he expanded his business by providing superior service and selection to retail customers throughout the Seattle area. The small operation originally employed only Izzy’s two brothers, but over the past 65 years, Halfon Candy has grown by leaps and bounds. We currently employ over 30 people from our Seattle based warehouse. Since Mr. Halfon’s retirement in 1995, Halfon Candy has transitioned into our second generation of family leadership and is now run by Izzy’s daughter and her husband, Marie and Alan Scharhon. At Halfon Candy Company, our goal has always been to provide superior service to each of our Northwest customers by following our company’s motto, “There’s always a way!”
