Edward Marc is a family-owned chocolate company that was started in 1914 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They now have a factory in Trafford, Pennsylvania, and retail shops in Monroeville, Pennsylvania; Pittsburgh and Arlington, Virginia, as well as a sales office in Washington, D.C.

The family also runs a shake shop, called The Milkshake Factory, in Pittsburgh in the space of their great-grandparents’ original 1914 soda fountain. An Edward Marc Chocolatier outpost opened earlier this year at the Pentagon (the first retail location for the company in the DC area) and another Milk Shake Factory may not be far behind.[1]

Edward Marc is also involved in a variety of charities,[2] including the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, The Children's Institute, the Touch a Life Foundation, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
