A play off the founder's last name mixed with the word chocolate, Schakolad has made fresh chocolates for three generations of Schaked's. It all started in 1969, when co-founder Baruch Schaked worked as a chocolatier in an Argentinian chocolate factory and discovered his passion for chocolate. After traveling throughout Europe for courses where he mastered the art of chocolate making, Schaked put his talent to the test at the famous Fontainebleau Chocolate Festival, where his handmade truffles won him multiple first place awards.
To keep his father's passion for chocolate alive, Schaked's son Edgar opened the first Schakolad Chocolate Factory in 1995. Four years later, he decided to franchise the factory. Though the business continues to grow, Edgar remains true to the factory's family-based roots. He does this by ensuring each location makes fresh chocolates on site.
