Goody's is a family run tradition of handmade chocolates, candies and ice cream. First created by Marne and Marion Palmateer in Sunriver, Oregon in 1984, Goody's Candy Store very quickly became a legendary and loved Central Oregon tradition selling assorted candies purchased for resale.
Later, the Palmateers started making their own chocolate out of their home to sell in the store. The store moved to its current location in the Sunriver Village Mall where the Palmateers started making their own award winning ice cream. The Sunriver Goody’s store continues to be a customer favorite during busy vacation times.
Other stores were opened in Bend and Boise, Idaho beginning in 1989 to 1999. To keep up with the demand for quality chocolate and ice cream it was necessary to open a manufacturing facility in Bend. The manufacturing plant is still running strong and produces over 16 tons of chocolate products each year and thousands of gallons of ice cream.
Dane and Jvon Danforth purchased the company in June of 2007, excluding the Boise store which is owned and operated by Brett Palmateer. The Danforth’s opened another store in Eugene, Oregon in June 2012 and continue to provide the same quality products that Goody’s is known for.
Goody's chocolates and candies can be purchased by the piece or by the pound. Every decadent piece of Goody's chocolate is made preservative free in beautiful Central Oregon.
Goody's has been making and selling its own chocolate and ice cream for the past 30 years. We are excited to announce the opening of franchise opportunities in the State of Oregon. Our first franchise opened in Prineville, Oregon in May 2011. If you are interested in learning how you can own a Goody's franchise, please contact Dane Danforth at our corporate office.

All About Chocolate
Goody's manufactures approximately 20 tons of chocolate a year. There are NO additives in Goody's chocolates and they are gluten free. Chocolate is best stored at cool room temperatures (60-70), well wrapped to keep moisture out, and away from highly scented foods or aromatic products that might be absorbed by the chocolate. Chocolate is a stable product that does not require refrigeration. Ideally it should not be refrigerated as this will change the appearance of the chocolate.
