Our Story

Hello, me and my brother Danny are the proud owners of Paul Thomas Chocolates.

It’s a pretty crazy story of how we got here.

Back in 1975, Paul Thomas Hoffman decided to quit his rocket engineering job and get into the candy-making business (no kidding!).

With a $1,500 loan and a handshake, he founded what is now Florida’s biggest manufacturer of chocolate (Hoffman’s Chocolates). Eventually, he decided to move to North Georgia and retire. That lasted about a week and a half; before he founded Paul Thomas Chocolates.

About a decade later, Danny and I started working for Paul during our college years.

We fell in love with the atmosphere, the high quality and sheer number of handmade-on-location chocolates, and the impact that one little shop could have on the community through donating to charities that help give a hand-up to those in need.

By 2018, Paul wanted to retire (for the second time now 😉 when he discovered he would soon be a Great-Grandfather, but he was very concerned about the future of Paul Thomas Chocolates – and so were we!

Danny and I just couldn’t bear the thought of a world without Paul Thomas Chocolates. So, I quit my fiber-optics engineering job and we made Paul an offer. He eagerly accepted, and ever since then we have dedicated ourselves to preserving (and growing) his legacy!

What Makes Us Special

1. At Paul Thomas Chocolates, everything in our showcases & on our tables plus most of what’s on our shelves is handmade from scratch on-location. Why?—Because there’s no better way to guarantee the highest level of quality and freshness, so that’s what we do.

2. We believe we’re all put on earth to bless others, so we constantly give a percentage of sales to charities that give a hand-up to those in need by providing health services, temporary lodging, and/or skills training.

We have high hopes for what Paul Thomas Chocolates can do and become.

However, the only way for us to accomplish our mission of letting more people experience what Paul started here, is by reaching them. And the only way for us to help more families in need, is by growing.

We hope that you will join us in our endeavor by shopping with us and sharing your experiences with your friends and family!
