James H. Dewar and brother George, opened The Chocolate Shop in 1909. The candy store was located at 1665 Chester Avenue in Bakersfield, California, the first door north of the Hall of Records.
In 1930, Dewar’s Candy Shop opened at its present location on 1120 Eye Street. At the same time James H. starting making and serving ice cream.
In 1999 Heather Dewar joined the company with the intention to open a second location for Dewar’s Candy Shop and in December 2001 the second shop was opened at 9530 Hageman Road in Bakersfield, California.
The Riverlakes location was closed in 2011 and in January of 2012, Dewar’s opened a new soda fountain at 2700 Calloway that was unlike any before it. Complete with a life-like, singing moose-head, a semi-enclosed patio with a fireplace/water feature and a party room with a bounce house, games and a large piano to dance on like the one form the movie “Big”
