The food business is a humble one, and those in it strive to make people happy. We've been doing that for 75 years and are proud to carry the products of many other local brands, such as the iconic Esther Price Fine Chocolates with a rich history and their own milestone anniversary of 100 years on the horizon. It's with great enthusiasm that we collaborated together to unveil this special edition box packed with Esther Price assorted chocolates to commemorate our 75th anniversary. The box features a photo of DLM founder Calvin D. Mayne standing outside the original Dorothy Lane Market in 1948.
A big part of our mission here at DLM is to make our customers happy. In talking to Doug Dressman, Esther Price president, and Todd Summers, vice president, they are driven in a similar way. "Candy equals joy," says Todd. As we dive deeper into this collaboration, it becomes clear that this also is a celebration of the local ties between two businesses that prize quality and love the communities they serve.
Whether you are looking at the crust of our Artisan Bread that's Made Right Here or viewing the freshly made cream that's hand-rolled with peanut butter and enrobed in chocolate of an Esther Price Peanut Butter Cream, no two are exactly alike, thanks to the craftsmanship. But there is a consistency in quality and a level of perfectionism that is ensured with each. That type of dedication though starts with the people. At DLM, we are very proud to have numerous associates who have worked here for 25, 30, or even 40+ years! That is also the case when you tour Esther Price and meet the kind souls who diligently craft the chocolates. They take great pride in their work, just like we do, too.
