Our History

The Olympia Candy Kitchen has been welcoming visitors for almost a century in its unchanged location in downtown Goshen, Indiana. Its tradition began in 1912 when Greek immigrant Nicholas Paflas began making his own hand-dipped chocolates and running the soda fountain…the old-world way, with friendly and courteous service.

It was at the Olympia Candy Kitchen where he met his wife, Leona. In 1920, the couple purchased the Candy Kitchen and added a diner. From its humble beginning, the Olympia Candy Kitchen has remained a family business, passed down from generation to generation.

The Olympia Candy Kitchen has a rich history in Goshen, passing through four generations over 100 years, and it continues to be a local gathering spot to this day.
