Guests can enjoy what seems to be an endless selection of candy and chocolate treats made right on site.

Everyone loves great chocolate! The Chocolate Works’ franchise is built on a long-time proven business model, supported by our 22,000 sq. ft. chocolate factory, warehouse and corporate offices in Freeport, NY.

Chocolate Works’ is a family-owned business that began as parent company, 5th Avenue Chocolatiere, more than 40 years ago.  Second-generation chocolatier and owner, Joe Whaley, a West Point graduate and veteran of the Iraq war, has built on his father success, growing Chocolate Works into a uniquely well-rounded chocolate and candy extravaganza with multiple revenue streams. 

Chocolate Works is a fast-growing franchise, experiencing unprecedented success, with 15 opened stores that transform the corner candy shop into an interactive chocolate factory experience.

Willy Wonka’s got nothing on the Chocolate Works factory, which produces an array of fine chocolate products, from our signature truffles to chocolate-covered pretzels, oreos, marshmallows, caramels, graham cracker and so much more. Much of the produce is made on site at our franchised locations.

Whatever the economy, whatever the area or age group, there’s always a market for fine chocolate!

The interactive nature of our stores give our guests the ability to join into the fun. Our guests can sign up for workshops, events, camps, girl scout programs or host private parties or events at the stores. Whether you are 5 years old or 55, at Chocolate Works putting on your apron and working the equipment is a sweet experience.

Franchisees have the ability to grow their business far beyond the 4 walls of their retail store by servicing corporate accounts with their gifting needs. With our ability to create custom molds for corporate clients, and the corporate factory to help support production, franchisees have uncapped potential to service even the largest of corporate accounts.
