On the coast of Southern California, in Ports of Call Village, people gather from all over to relax and enjoy the clear skies, fresh air, and the picturesque atmosphere of the sea. It is here that Kelly's began at the water's edge as a quaint New England style shop. The fresh aroma of home-style fudge soon began to lead crowds of hungry customers to Kelly's. As onlookers watched, kettles of freshly cooked fudge poured into pans and folded into loaves for sale to the anxiously awaiting customers. This was the forerunner of a new and expanded concept, and "Kelly's Coffee & Fudge Factory" was born.
