The Candy Dish – Now Open!

In 2015, after a short period of filling orders for private events, Co-Founders and fellow New Englanders, Melissa DiMinico, and Shauna Semenza realized their homemade candy products were gaining popularity and shifted their trajectory by committing to their confectionary craft full time in order to open The Candy Dish. This duo has since turned their business into a premiere artisan candy company, claiming tons of praise, awards, and accolades from regional culinary competitions and trade shows. Now, with their first brick and mortar store located in the heart of MarketStreet, the two women are poised to grow their business and amp up production for the coming holiday season. The Candy Dish customizes flavors that will elevate all celebrations and features assortments of candy beautifully gift wrapped in luxe signature boxes and gift bags. A can’t miss item is their signature Chocolate Lobster. Similar to a chocolate turtle, The Chocolate Lobster  allows for even more buttery caramel to be sandwiched between cashew “claws and legs;” it can be purchased in milk, dark or white chocolate.

Growing up on the north shore, Melissa and Shauna have been faithful and frequent Marketstreet shoppers since the day it opened. It feels perfect to start their brick and mortar store in the heart of Marketstreet. Please join them for their grand opening for the holiday season on November 20th at 10am!
