Mr. B’s Chocolates is celebrating some of our favorite small businesses with and their “Sweet Stories of Success”! This Sweet Story of Success features Felling Trailers, a family-owned company started in 1974 by Merle and Kathy Felling in Sauk Centre, MN. It is now led by second generation owners, sisters Brenda (Felling) Jennissen and Bonnie (Felling) Radjenovich. Felling has approximately 300 employees based out of two Minnesota locations (Sauk Centre and Litchfield). They manufacture over 5000 trailers a year that are distributed via a dealer network and other channel partners all over North America. One thing that we love about Felling Trailers is how they give back with their “Trailer for a Cause”. Each year they choose a different non-profit and then hold an online auction for a trailer with the entire winning bid going to that cause. They have been doing it for over a decade and have impacted so many people with total donations over $40,000!
Sharing a Little Piece of Central MNFor the fifth year in a row, Felling Trailers has used Mr. B’s premium Belgian chocolates to show their appreciation for their very best dealers and customers. Patrick Jennissen, VP of Sales & Marketing at Felling Trailers, appreciates that Mr. B’s Chocolates is Minnesota-based, “We love that Mr. B’s is a local company and that we can share a little piece of central Minnesota with people all over the country.” Many companies, like Felling Trailers, recognize their clients and staff with corporate gifting between the Thanksgiving and New Year’s holidays. But chocolate can be a great gift at any time of the year. Many of Felling’s customers look forward to their chocolate delivery, asking “When is our chocolate coming?” which is a great indicator that it’s the perfect gift.
Quality, Customized Chocolate Gifts
At Mr. B’s, we aim to make the task of shipping gifts to multiple clients simple, whether it’s a couple dozen or hundreds. This means a lot to the Felling Trailers team. Pat pointed out, “The fact that Mr. B’s handles the entire process of wrapping and shipping, makes it super easy for us. We also like the personal touch of the customized logo bar that we can give to our customers and employees.” Not all chocolate is created equal and Pat and the leadership team at Felling have experienced this firsthand. Pat pointed out, “Every chocolate and box feels special and handcrafted. It is not like a regular box of chocolate that you normally get. Mr. B’s makes some of the best chocolates we have ever personally tasted… and our customers say the same thing!”
Thank you, Felling Trailers!

He said, “We really appreciate how easy that Mr B’s has made the process. I want to give a special thank you to the chocolate makers, and the packagers that put together such an amazing high-quality product. I know there is a lot of hard work that goes into, and it really is appreciated and noticed!” Thank you to Felling Trailers for your kind words and the ongoing partnership! We know that there is hard work that comes with welding and painting trailers, but it is nice to hear that our work in making beautiful and delicious chocolates is appreciated, too.
