Third Generation

Picture circa 1961:

Max and Dick Winans opened Winans Carriage House Candies and ran it along with their Bellefontaine Bakery. Their first candies were hand dipped chocolates and Hard Tack, as pictured here. In the beginning, retail and manufacturing all took place at the Carriage House. They split the business in the early 70’s; Max taking the chocolate operation in Piqua and Dick taking the bakery in Bellefontaine. Max raised a family with his wife Jean, their four children are Greg, Laurie, Andy and Tim. Max owned and operated the business until his daughter and son-in-law bought the business in 1993.
