The bumpy road for the Ottawa chocolatier comes to an end
OTTAWA — Hunt Brothers Homestyle Bakery and Sweets in Ottawa, Ohio, is closing its doors on December 31, 2022.
The company, founded in 2014 by Jason Hunt, has decided to close the brick store located at 110 N. Walnut St. in Ottawa.
According to Facebook, “It was not an easy decision, but with the changes in our careers and a hectic family life, we can no longer give the store as much attention as we would like.”
Candy by Hunt Brothers is planning a fundraiser for next year, but even that will look different.
As with most businesses, there has been no “business as usual” for the store in recent months. Last summer there were problems getting chocolate. In the spring, there was enough chocolate in the store, which was enough for the whole summer. At some point, the store was unable to provide white chocolate. There were problems getting caramel. And then, once the caramel was found, it had to be changed so that it was the right consistency. The moment they had the chocolate, the store couldn’t get the package.
Employee Linda March said, “It’s not like it used to be.”
The website claimed that they used “only the finest ingredients and all chocolates are hand-dipped on site”. We are constantly striving to improve our recipes for a wide range of delectable treats, including caramelized turtles, rocky road bands, and various bark flavors. We have a delicious selection of cookies, muffins and other baked goods.”
It will be a little more difficult to calm the sweet tooth after closing Saturday.
