Timed with the Winter Holidays and gift-giving season, Läderach-chocolatier suisse announced the opening of its newest premium chocolate store at the Prudential Center in Boston. This store is located on the main level and allows chocolate lovers to awaken their five senses through more than 85 artisanal varieties of handcrafted chocolates directly from Switzerland.
The store includes Läderach’s iconic FrischSchoggi™ (fresh chocolate) counter at the front behind clear glass featuring multiple large slabs of chocolate bark that can be hand-broken and enjoyed for any everyday ritual. Additional chocolates include handcrafted pralines, truffles, chocolate popcorn, single-origin tablet bars, seasonal items, and the Masters Collection, which helped Elias Läderach win the coveted World Chocolate Master title in 2018.
Elias leads production and innovation for Läderach. The freshness of Läderach chocolate is second to none as it’s sustainably sourced, made from bean-to-bar in-house in Switzerland, and shipped directly to its 100 + stores worldwide.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Läderach to the Prudential Center and bring their world renown and sustainably sourced chocolate to Boston,” said Bryan Koop, Executive Vice President for Boston Properties, Boston Region. “Prudential Center is a destination for some of the world’s most enticing retail brands and Läderach continues this tradition by bringing a boutique chocolate “experience” to all who visit.”
The new chocolate store in the Prudential Center marks the third location Läderach has opened in Massachusetts since September, 2021 and the 33rd store in North America since Läderach started its western expansion in November 2019 with initial openings in New York City and Toronto. Other locations in Massachusetts include:
- South Shore Plaza in Braintree, Massachusetts
- Natick Mall in Natick, Massachusetts.
On Valentine’s Day in 2021, Läderach announced an asset purchase agreement to assume the leases of more than 30 Godiva locations in the US from coast-to-coast, which includes these three new locations. Läderach will continue its retail expansion in North America with the announcement of new store locations through March 2022.
