LAURA SECORD

LAURA SECORD INC.

In early 2010, this headline attracted our attention: “Laura Secord Back in Canadian Hands: Company Repatriated Through Sale to Quebec’s Aliments NutriArt,” by Hollie Shaw, Financial Post, February 18, 2010. The article indicated that Laura Secord was purchased from the private-equity firms Gordon Brothers Group LLC and EB Capital Group by the Quebec-based Aliments NutriArt which is related to Leclerc Ltee. Although Laura Secord is a popular figure in Canadian history and well known as an eponym for a major chocolate retailer, we noticed that there was little information conveniently compiled for the latter. For that reason we will direct you to some relevant resources.

The origins of the company have been traced to Toronto in 1913 and the opening of one store by Frank P. O’Connor. This information is available on the company website in 2010:

There is also a very useful website devoted to the company founder. Frank P. O’Connor, and the promotion of the Irish heritage in Toronto. That “Ontario Irish Heritage House” site is found here in 2010: http://oconnoririshheritagehouse.com/about.php. Considerable biographical detail is provided along with various facts about the establishment of Laura Secord. As well, two very useful articles are reproduced: “Historical Toronto: O’Connor’s Candy Profits Sweetened Toronto Charities” Toronto Star, Feb. 11, 1978 and another from the Financial Times, August 16, 1935 [that is the Canadian FT and copies are available in the Western Libraries].

Bibliographic Timeline:
2010 - A basic timeline is provided by Hollie Shaw in a brief piece in The National Post, on Feb. 18, 2010 – “Chocolatier’s Long Journey Home”. Additional articles relating to the repatriation will be found around this time.
2003-2004 - It was during these years that negotiations took place about the purchase of Laura Secord from the Archibald Candy Company:
- “Sweet Offer: U.S.-Based Archibald Candy Puts Laura Secord Up for Sale,” Gary Norris, CP, April 22, 2003 “One hundred and ninety years after Laura Secord warned the British militia of an American ambush near Niagara Falls, the U.S. owner of the chocolate company that bears her name is putting this cash cow up for sale. Chicago-based Archibald Candy Corp., which bought the Canadian confectioner from Nestle in 1999, said Tuesday it has hired an adviser to ``explore strategic alternatives, including a potential sale.'' Laura Secord, founded in 1913, has 1,600 employees, operating 174 shops under its own name and distributing its products through other retailers.”

- “Laura Secord Parent Shopping Canadian Chocolatier Around,” April, 23, 2004, The Globe and Mail.
- “Laura Secord Provides Business Update,” Canada NewsWire, February 25, 2004.
- “Laura Secord to Return Units of Historically Named Firm to Canada: Five Years an Expatriate: Company Trying to Distance Itself from Troubled U.S. Parent”, Michelle DaCruz, The National Post, Feb. 26, 2004.
- “Laura Secord Sale Receives Court Approval”, July 28, 2004 The Globe and Mail. It was reported that: “The sale of chocolatier Laura Secord to a Boston-based investment company received approval yesterday from courts in Canada and the United States. The company was put up for sale by Chicago-based Archibald Candy Corp., which has been operating under Chapter 11 proceedings since January. Gordon Brothers Group LLC won an auction to buy Laura Secord last week from Archibald with a bid of $27.6-million.”
1999 - “U.S. Firm Swallows Laura Secord: Nestle Sells 175-Store Canadian Chain to Archibald After Saying it Didn’t Fit Long-Term Plans,” Marina Strauss, June 3, 1999, The Globe and Mail. This is an informative article and here are some of the points mentioned:
“Laura Secord has been in foreign hands for 18 of the past 32 years, most recently being owned by Nestle SA of Switzerland.”
“Laura Secord remained Canadian owned until 1967 when the U.S. firm, Fanny Farmer Candy Shops Inc., gained control. The Canadian stores were bought by John Labatt Ltd. in 1969 but were sold to Britain's Rowntree Mackintosh PLC in 1983. Nestle acquired the business 11 years ago as part of a hostile takeover of Rowntree.
1998 - “Nestle Canada-Laura Secord Has 174 Retail Stores,” September 17, 2008, Dow Jones News Service. The article indicates that Nestle Canada has hired Rhone Group LLC to help sell Laura Secord.
1993 - “News Bulletin: Secord Closing Stores,” Feb. 16, 1993, The Globe and Mail,. It is indicated that 7 stores in British Columbia were closed.
1983 - “Company News: Rowntree,” May 6, 1983, The Globe and Mail. It is reported that:
“Rowntree Mackintosh Corp. of Toronto says the Foreign Investment Review Agency has approved its purchase of the Laura Secord division of Ault Foods Ltd., a unit of John Labatt Ltd. of London, Ont. Completion of the transaction is expected shortly.
1982 - “John Labatt To Sell Laura Secord for $40 Million,” Dec. 3, 1982, Dow Jones News Service.
1969 - Sold to a division of John Labatt.
1913 - Established in Toronto.

The Johnston Library has reports for various years for Laura Secord in print and on microform. Mr. O’Connor also established Fanny Farmer chocolate stores in Rochester, New York. Apparently they were named to honour Fannie Farmer. To sort out the confusing eponyms (there is also a Fannie Mae Chocolates) see this very useful article which lists additional sources: “Fannie Mae Confections Brands,” by A. Woodward in the International Directory of Company Histories, Vol. 80, 2007, p.114. [available electronically to members of the Western academic community]
For additional information about Canadian chocolate enterprises see the entries for Ganong and Purdy’s. Other candy companies are found scattered throughout this bibliography and they can be found by searching for the word “candy” in each alphabetical sequence. They are also listed in the Industry Index under “Food and Food Processing”.
