Just Born Quality Confections is a third-generation, family owned company. In 1923, founder Sam Born opened a small candy-making and retail store in Brooklyn, New York, where he marketed daily-made candy with a sign that declared, “Just Born.” Together with Born’s brothers-in-law, Irv and Jack Shaffer, the company thrived in spite of the economic depression and, in 1932, moved its operations to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which is still home to the iconic candy brands.
