Slow Sweets hosted by the Berley Brothers
Ryan and Eric Berley co-own The Franklin Fountain "An Ice Cream Saloon" and Shane Confectionery, "America's Oldest Candy Store" in Old City, having restored and operated their business since 2004 to local and National Awards and recognition from the Inquirer, New York Times, Bon Appetit, Saveur, to name a few! In addition to history, architecture, style and sweets being their driving interests, their food philosophy brings these ideas together in a first ever lecture titled "Slow Sweets" to premier for Slow Food Philly!
"Slow Sweets" seeks the mysterious connections between one's head, hand and heart. In line with the concept of biodynamic farming, our business model first had to learn to use all "parts of the cow." "Slow Sweets," is a term we'll be using to discuss the relationship between our businesses at The Franklin Fountain and Shane Confectionery and our philosophy of recipe development, local product sourcing and our values for a people-centered, inspiring, retail experience. Slow Sweets is human-centered and enriching. Our 'greenhouse' was and is Shane Candies-America's Oldest Confectionery since 1863, as a way of staying busy thru the winter. This model mirrors those Confectioneries of years past because it's a successful formula. We'll be highlighting our Values Tree and looking forward to sharing new ideas and seeing old friends!
