Sue Charney's love of making candy led to the creation of Red Rocker Candy in April 2000. Sue started her career by making toffee and other gourmet chocolates out of the basement of her home. To get her products into the hands of others, she traveled to the local Farmer's Markets, Fairs, and Craft Shows. After she was in business for only six years, demand for her delicious products increased to where she outgrew her home-based business and moved to their current production facility in Troy, Virginia.
In 2008, Sue began to experiment with the coating of pretzels in a silky, white confection. This product quickly became the company's signature and bestselling Rocking Chair Mix. Once Sue saw she was filling a void within the snack food industry, she decided to expand her pretzel mix line by offering the mixes in a variety of other flavors which she is still continuing to grow today.
