Läderach, the largest Swiss chocolate retailer in the industry, has opened the world’s largest flagship store in New York City on 5th Avenue.
With nearly 60 years in operation as a Swiss family-owned company, Läderach’s retail and e-commerce expansion builds upon its entry in London, Toronto and its other New York City outlet, opened in November 2019.
Just in time for the winter season, the 2,500-square-foot New York City flagship store marks its 100th store opening in the world. The company also said an additional US retail location is set to open at Washington, DC Union Station in February 2021.
“We make fresh, artisanal chocolate from Switzerland, and our first store in New York and e-commerce performance proves that there is demand for our unique chocolate experience,“ said Johannes Läderach, CEO, Läderach-chocolatier suisse. “We are excited to meet the growing premium chocolate demand in the US through this expansion.”
Because the company controls the entire production and distribution channel, Läderach’s product freshness is “second-to-none,” it claims. The chocolate is made bean-to-bar in-house, finished by hand, and brought directly to its fully-owned retail locations.
