Hammonds Candy Factory was started in 1920 by Mr. Carl T. Hammond, Sr. His first factory was located in the Platte River Valley (near the current REI building). In 1948, Hammonds Candy Factory moved to 29th & Bryant in North Denver. Carl, Sr. retired in 1960 and his son and daughter-in-law, Tom (Carl, Jr.) & June Hammond, ran the factory. Tom passed away in 1985 and the business was left in the hands of June and their son-in-law, Emery Dorsey. In 1997, June sold the company to 3 shareholders. Unfortunately, there are no Hammonds family members working for the factory today but there are employees that have been with the 1948factory1_400company since the early 1980s! In 1999, Hammonds Candies moved to a larger factory at 4969 Colorado Blvd where they were able to increase production and start giving factory tours. However, they outgrew that facility in just 5 years and moved to their current location at 5735 Washington Street in the summer of 2004.

Over the last 86 years, the "Mile-high" city of Denver, Colorado has seen a number of fine chocolate and candy manufacturers come and go. But the candy company founded by Carl T. Hammond, Sr, in 1920 is one that is still very much in business.

Old fashioned candies such as sugar bites, hard candy crystal cuts, bagged drops and candy sticks. All in popular flavors of strawberry shortcake, bubblegum, lemonade, watermelon, peppermint, root beer float and cinnamon.
