WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Fascia’s Chocolates, a Waterbury-based candy company, has been named one of the top twelve confectioners in the country by Peter’s Chocolate.

Chocolate is and has always been a passion for the Fascia family.

A toolmaker turned chocolatier, John and Helen Fascia opened their business in a basement, all while Helen was expecting her first child.

Their three daughters — Louise, Lynn and Lori — grew up around candy and joined the family business later in life.

Carmen Romeo, the President of Fascia’s Chocolates and son-in-law to John and Helen, spoke with News 8 about this great achievement and the family’s journey from basement to top business.
