Charlie's Chocolate Factory
DeFluri’s 12,000 square-foot factory is located in historic Martinsburg, West Virginia, in the heart of the city’s main business district. The expansive 50’s-era building once housed a McCroy’s Five & Dime store, which still features a soda-fountain lunch counter, time-clock with original punch cards, and other vintage memorabilia.
Today, of course, the main factory floor houses the vast array of Charlie Casabona’s chocolate-making equipment.
Massive mixers swirl vats of creamy chocolate. Finely calibrated conveyer belts enrobe DeFluri’s famous truffles, classic caramels and nuts, fruit cakes from a local monestary, and much more—with velvety, rich coats of chocolate. Walk-in refrigeration rooms keep the final products and their ingredients at optimum cool temperatures.
