Hotel Chocolat Gibraltar
Sandpiper introduced their luxury chocolate franchise to Gibraltar in May 2016. Hotel Chocolat started a British chocolate revolution when it opened its first shop in North London in 2004.
The Hotel Chocolat Gibraltar is located at 154 Main Street which is right in the heart of Gibraltar’s main shopping area.
SandpiperCI’s CEO, Tony O’Neill said: “Hotel Chocolat is world-renowned for its delicious ‘Iconic Slabs’ and mouth-watering liquid Chocolate, so we’re delighted to introduce this luxury brand into Mainland Europe. It will be the second franchise brand under our umbrella that we’re extending into Europe and follows the success of our Costa Coffee outlets which we’ve already opened in Spain and Gibraltar.
“Sandpiper has a reputation as a trusted partner of many UK brands because we share the same language, culture and philosophy which puts us in a unique position to leverage our extensive brand knowledge to help brands like Hotel Chocolat enter new European markets.”
Founded by Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris, Hotel Chocolat was established with one goal in mind – to make a better type of authentic chocolate available to UK consumers. Authentic, wholesome ingredients are the foundations of Hotel Chocolat’s success, and its position has been further strengthened by its purchase and restoration of a cocoa plantation in St Lucia. Hotel Chocolat supports the St Lucian cocoa growers through its unique ‘Engaged Ethics’ programme and the results of its extensive cocoa research are evident in the fine chocolate range which is exclusive to Hotel Chocolat stores.
Hotel Chocolat was recently awarded Emerging Retailer of the Year by the influential publication, Retail Week, and has been selected as one of the UK’s prestigious ‘Cool Brands’ for four years running.
