The Chocolate Works mission is to “Create happiness one chocolate smile at a time.” This vision came to life in 1973 when John Whaley followed his heart’s passion and opened 5th Avenue Chocolatiere. His son, Joe founded Chocolate Works to continue the tradition of hand crafting chocolates and to create stores where everyone discovers a love for chocolate-making. Chocolate Works' master chocolatiers start their creations using heirloom recipes and the freshest ingredients to hand mold and dip specialty chocolates. Developed through years of experience, these chocolate artists use their creativity to create one-of-a-kind sweet delights for consumers the world over. It’s the attention to the finest detail that make these chocolates as beautiful as they are delicious.
