Dear Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company Customers,
Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company has had to change the way we operate as a business and manufacturer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to let you know first and foremost, We are here for you! When this is all all over, WE WILL be here.
Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company is 100% owned and operated by the Abel Family and we are working hard to keep our business functioning during this time. We have been in Saint Louis since 1981, since newlyweds Dan Abel Sr. and Rosalie Abel started a small chocolate company. Today, their three children have joined the company to help grow the business nationally.
At this current time - our retail stores are closed and will remain closed until it is safe to operate. We believe we will be able to open mid-May, it depends when the St. Louis City/County Stay-At-Home order is lifted. The family is using this time to update a few of our older retail stores while we're closed - we will be excited for you to see our new refreshed stores when we open back up!
Our factory is operating on a limited basis. We started a deep clean and sanitation of all of our production equipment. We are also keeping a few lines operational for online orders. This will ensure that the factory goes through a deep clean. While our staff is here, we temperature check everyone daily, we have Quality team members posted at the hand washing station to ensure everyone washes their hands for a full 20 seconds, we have staggered our lunch breaks so the cafeteria is 1/2 full, we are spreading people throughout our two facilities for social distancing, and anyone that is sick CANNOT attend work. As of 4/13/2020, we will be closed on Friday's during the month of April. We will use Friday's to deep clean the facility and give our staff a day off
Our Online store is open, we are taking and processing orders on www.chocolatechocolate.com. If you want to place a LOCAL PICKUP order, we can do that too! Please call (314) 338-3501 (our factory store). We will take your order over the phone, charge it - and have it bagged up for your arrival. You wont be able to enter the retail store at pickup unfortunately, but this assures store stays sanitized and staff stays safe.
Please let us know how we can help! Nobody expected COVID-19, but we are sure trying our best to keep our staff healthy, employed and our customers access to their favorite chocolatier!
Thank you for your patronage !
The Abel Family
