Richardson Mints is a product of Roses Brands, an American confectionary.[1] It was founded by Thomas D. Richardson in 1893 and is known for its signature pillow mints candy.[2] As of 2021, it is owned by Roses Brands.


Richardson Mints was established by Thomas D. Richardson in 1893.[1] In the beginning, Richardson started selling mints at a department store in Philadelphia. Later, with his two sons, he began commercial production of the soft sugar mints.

In 1988, Beechies brand chewing gum joined the Richardson lineup through acquisition. On May 11, 2006, Founder’s Equity acquired Richardson, and in the same year, in September 2006, Richardson acquired Gravymaster Inc., a manufacturer of Dryden and Palmer rock candy and Gravymaster browning sauce. Later on August 14, 2009, Richardson brands acquired Bogdon’s Confections, but then Roses Brands acquired Richardson Brands in 2020.[1]

Richardson operates a 180,000 square foot facility in Canajoharie, New York.[1]
