Our story is a love story
Like Chocolate, Love Should be Shared
For Alli and Hank Rose, the founders of Saratoga Chocolate Co., food is an expression of love. And what sweeter expression can there be than chocolate?
What began as an experiment in Alli’s tiny home kitchen in 2004 quickly grew into a deep and abiding passion for creating world-class confections. It didn’t take long for those confections to win over Hank, and after a decade of perfecting her craft as a chocolatier, sourcing the highest quality ingredients, honing her palate to perfectly matched flavors and dreaming up original recipes, Alli and Hank founded Saratoga Chocolate Company. The company is the culmination of their collective spirit of adventure, entrepreneurial drive, creative spark and love for food and flavor.
Saratoga Chocolate Co. officially launched in 2016 and has been spreading the love ever since. Even today, each bar, bark, bonbon and truffle is handmade from the highest quality chocolate – single origin or blended – then hand wrapped and packed with care by our team. Each product is carefully crafted to satiate the body and indulge the senses.
Saratoga Chocolate Co. also bears the name and reflects the unique culture of Saratoga Springs, New York – our hometown. A long-time summer vacation destination, Saratoga Springs has drawn visitors looking to appreciate the creativity of its artistic community, admire the refinement of its racetrack contenders and absorb the health benefits of its natural springs. So, it’s only natural that Saratoga Chocolate Co. embodies the unique blend of creativity, refinement and nourishment that make Saratoga Springs a destination people love to return to again and again.
Alli, Hank and the entire family at Saratoga Chocolate Co. are glad you’re here, and can’t wait to share their passion for chocolate with you!
