A third generation company, Brummer's Chocolates was established in 1904 in Jersey City, New Jersey. Moving to Vermilion, Ohio in 1990, Bob Brummer extended their business to the mid-west while George Brummer continues to do business in New Jersey.The candy and chocolates are made in the back of both brother’s stores using the same family recipes that were used over 100 years ago. Unlike large candy companies where everything is automated, the Brummer brothers make most everything by hand.In addition to homemade chocolate and fudge, Brummer’s stock other quality candies that their customers have requested over the years, as well as cards, gifts and Polish pottery at the Vermilion location.
 

After 28 years in Vermilion Sandy & Bob Brummer have taken the steps to gradually slow down and start a long over due retirement, as they started looking to make this transition they started looking for someone to take the reins that would continue on this family legacy that has become a mainstay in Vermilion. 

They found Mimma and Audie Bonderer who have both been in the food industry all of their lives.  The Bonderers are not strangers, Bob had a business relationship with Mimma for years, and has been training Audie since march he helped with the Easter rush.  New business owner Audie views taking the reins of Brummer’s as a natural fit, he was already a huge fan of the store and he shares the same philosophy as the Brummer’s.  “Treat others as you would want to be treated.” Wife Mimma is from Sardinia, Italy, which is the showcase for quality food in that country.  Audie, himself, spent 15 years at the Italian open markets and has managed marinas in this area since 1999.  Don’t expect a lot to change at Brummer’s Chocolates he plans to keep the wonderful traditions of Brummer’s well into the future, he feels that everyone should get to experience being a kid in a candy store!!   You will continue to get to take a step back in time at  Brummer’s in historic Vermilion, Ohio.  Vermilion is the crowning jewel of the south shore of Lake Erie.  From quaint shops to fine dining, the arts, entertainment and unmatched festivities, Vermilion truly has it all.  Stay for a day, maybe two, and take home a memory that will last forever.
