An extension of the family-owned and operated Manhattan Chocolatiere, Chocolate Works, a new franchise concept, is transforming the corner candy shop into an interactive chocolate factory experience. Beyond the candy bins and cases of chocolates, customers of all ages are invited to indulge in a hands-on learning experience molding, decorating and dipping their very own chocolate and candy creations.
Second-generation Chocolatier and owner, Joe Whaley, builds on the long history and solid reputation established by his father. Chocolate Works, his new venture, goes beyond basics to create a uniquely well-rounded chocolate and candy extravaganza.
“There’s nothing like chocolate and candy to put a smile on people’s faces and I want to share with everyone that it’s just as much fun creating chocolate as it is eating it,” says Whaley.
With current locations on Long Island, Scarsdale, and in Manhattan, Chocolate Works is now beginning to franchise in New York and New Jersey, with future plans to expand throughout the US.
What sets Chocolate Works apart is its unique three-tier model for satisfying the public’s sweet tooth. The winning combination of candy and chocolate retail, on-site parties, and custom corporate products is a completely new concept.
In 2012 Chocolate Works was voted Best Chocolatier by the Long Island Press, and has also been recognized by Time Out New York Kids as one of the “best new birthday experiences in the city.”
