Who We Are

Every company starts somewhere. Our founder Mr. Len Hartley started manufacturing beverages and syrups in his home way back in 1964. It seemed only natural since his family already had a long history in the beverage industry.

The Hartleys believe in the value of family so strongly, they built the whole company around it. H&H Products Company treats every employee, customer and supplier like family. Len‘s son, Morris Hartley, runs the company now, and he upholds the family tradition by empowering his employees to always do the right thing for our customers.

We absolutely love what we do, and it shows. Word spread quickly. We have grown from our humble beginning into a 41,000 square foot facility that produces millions of gallons of product per year.

Our snow cones, slushies, beverages, syrups and ingredients are now served all over the world, but you can still count on the same good old-fashioned customer service and family values that the Hartley family founded the company upon over 55 years ago.

Our Promise

H&H Products Company was founded on the principles of excellence, innovation, quality, and integrity. Our founder laid the groundwork for how we strive to serve our customers by saying:

We must do exactly what we say we are going to do, exactly when we say we are going to do it, or contact the parties involved. This contact should be made prior to our appointment or promised delivery. This policy is important for all relationships, family, customers, and fellow employees! It is mandatory for all employees and suppliers of H&H Products Company.

Our History

Len Hartley was always encouraged by his family to start his own business. He grew up watching and learning alongside his father, Joseph A. Hartley, Sr., who owned and managed small bottling plants in Greenville, Alabama.

With a $200 loan and a family history in the beverage industry, Len Hartley set out to open his own business manufacturing beverage concentrates and syrups. In 1964, H&H Products Company was founded, and the first location on Columbia Street in downtown Orlando opened for business.

Seven years later in 1971, the company relocated within Orlando. The facility has grown and leadership roles have changed, but with Len’s son, Morris Hartley, leading our company, our passion for improving the foodservice industry remains.

1964

The Start

Working together with his father, Joe Hartley, and encouraged by his family, Len Hartley started H&H Products Company and began making syrup out of his home in Orlando, Florida. Len was the third generation of his family to work in the beverage industry, a legacy which began with his grandfather in the early 1900s.

1965

First Move

With business growing, H&H Products moved to a small facility just south of downtown Orlando.

1971

Final Move

H&H Products moved to a new 5,000-square-foot facility in northwest Orlando, the location where the company still operates today.

1970s

A Family Business

Len’s mother, Mary Alice Hartley, joined H&H Products to answer phones and handle orders. She was a great addition to the company as it gained valuable customers such as McDonald’s and the newly opened Walt Disney World. McDonald’s remained a customer for 21 years and Walt Disney World is still a customer today.

1984

Morris Joins

Len Hartley’s son, Morris, began working for H&H Products part-time in many facets of the business during his high school and college years. After college, at the prompting of Len, Morris worked outside the company in preparation for his future roles within the business. In 1991, Morris rejoined Len in a full-time capacity with H&H Products. In 2001, Morris was named President of H&H Products.

2014

50th Anniversary

H&H Products celebrated 50 years of excellence by bringing together past and present employees who made it all possible.

2016

Betty Jean

Honoring Len Hartley’s wife, Betty Jean Hartley, H&H Products named a brand of premium beverages after her. As Len said, “She is much of the reason for the success of the company,” since in the early days she would often work by her husband’s side late into the night after teaching school during the day.

2017

Florida Key West

H&H Products acquired Florida Key West, a small producer of lemon and key lime juice as well as mixers. H&H Products updated the brand image and added it to their product lineup.
