In 1893, Paul F. Beich began his candy business after purchasing the confectionery business of J.W. Gray & Company. In January 1899, he purchased a factory from Lancaster Caramel Company which became the Paul F. Beich Company on January 1, 1905.
Beich’s Chocolates in sealed packages range in retail from 50c to $1.50 the pound package. Comprehensive assortment of smaller packages from 5c to 75c.
The chocolates themselves are not surpassed in quality by any.
The boxes are designed and manufactured in our own paper box department and have a distinction that is often lacking in boxes made by box factories catering to a variety of trades.
