What is Schakolad?
Schakolad Chocolate Factory is the internationally acclaimed brand for fresh, handmade European style chocolates. Our signature chocolates are prepared with the finest ingredients and presented in the time honored traditions of quality, artistry and innovation. Schakolad offers a variety of delicious chocolate products including assorted boxed chocolates, chocolate novelties and sugar free and low carb chocolates. In addition, Schakolad also has sweet gifts for every occasion as well as coffee beverages offered at some locations.
The Schakolad name (pronounced shaq-oh-LAD) is a combination of the name “Schaked”, after the company’s co-founder, Baruch Schaked, and “Chocolate”. The Schaked name represents three generations of chocolatiers who have been making chocolate since 1969, but the adventure really began when Baruch Schaked’s son Edgar scrapped his engineering career to keep the family’s passion alive after his father announced he was selling the shop and retiring. Thus, the first Schakolad Chocolate Factory was opened in 1995 in Winter Park, Florida.
Realize Your Dream
Imagine yourself being your own boss in this exciting business: running an upscale establishment and having fun while doing it! Schakolad Chocolate Factory will help you achieve this. With more than 40 years of experience in the chocolate manufacturing field, we will teach you in easy steps to make delicious chocolate.
Schakolad began franchising their unique system in 1999, creating national and international awareness as the producers of fine quality chocolates using only the highest quality ingredients. Typical Schakolad stores range between 1,200-1,600 sq. ft. in size. In this space you'll be able to prepare and sell the most delicious and fresh chocolates you have ever tasted. One of the secrets of the Schakolad success is finding a high traffic location. The more people that see you making fresh confections in the "river of chocolate", the more customers you will attract.
The support from the franchisors has been positive and motivating as well as informative and continues
beyond the specified period of training. The knowledge and expertise exhibited has been unsurpassed in the field
of chocolate. The manual has offered invaluable information and is designed for easy reading and is an excellent
reference for any situation relating to all aspects of the business. Bernie and Edgar Schaked have been available to
us each and every time we have needed their assistance. They have always supported our success and it is clear to us that their team approach will be a win/win situation for all who choose to become a part of "The Schakolad Family". As the
first franchisees of Schakolad Chocolate Factory, we would encourage any of you who want to own your own business to join this very impressive franchise system, as we believe this is the road to personal and professional success.
