Since 1921, Wolfgang Confectioners of York has been dedicated to sharing positivity and creating positive experiences with people.

Through partnerships with community organizations such as LifePath Christian Ministries and Penn-Mar Human Services, Wolfgang Confectioners is blessing lives by offering employment opportunities to those who may not be considered for jobs. Peter Hoberg joined the Wolfgang Confectioners team last August and assists with keeping the facility clean and organized by stocking items and sweeping the floor. “Peter came to us from Penn Mar and is doing an amazing job,” says Kenneth Seaman, Sr. Director of Human Resources.

“Wolfgang’s mission statement, ‘Make Candy, Bless Lives,’ is more than a saying to us and goes beyond the simple act of donating money to worthy causes. We believe that a well-balanced organization can generate a profit, and at the same time, have a larger purpose. Part of our purpose is to connect to and bless our community in a multitude of ways,” says Sam Miller, president of Wolfgang Confectioners.

“We have been granted stewardship of Wolfgang, which has allowed us to offer jobs to those in our community who are simply looking for a chance to show what they can do. This relationship has been a blessing to us inside our plants on both a personal and professional level. We look forward to many more opportunities to connect with our community as we attempt to live out our mission to ‘Make Candy, Bless Lives.’”

“Wolfgang has been a York County staple since 1921. From our early fundraising days, to our adventure into the branded grocery space, and now as a dedicated Co-Manufacturer, the York community has always supported us and we are grateful for their commitment.”
