VALLEY STREAM, N.Y., Dec.12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhasset is the latest Long Island town to get a big dose of pure sweetness. Chocolate Works, the burgeoning franchise concept that transforms the corner candy shop into an interactive chocolate factory experience, has just opened its third Long Island franchise this quarter. The new Manhasset store is located at 346 Plandome Road, Manhasset NY 11030.
Owners Ann and Brian Jackelow, who also reside in Manhasset, opened for business last Friday and plan to host an official Grand Opening Event this Saturday, December 14th starting at 2pm.
"After attending a friend's child's birthday party at the Valley Stream location, I knew Manhasset needed to have a Chocolate Works of its own," explains Ann Jackelow. "At first I didn't think I'd be the one to open it, but when I thought of the perfect location, I knew we had to do it. We have very strong ties to the community and the idea of bringing so much sweet happiness to our town is really fun."
"The thing that makes Chocolate Works so unique is that it's not just a retail store, and it's not just a birthday party place," added Ann. "I think the consensus is that Manhasset, especially Plandome Road which is the equivalent of our Main Street, can really use a fun place for kids (of all ages) to go and have a good time. People get excited about the chocolate, about having a new place for parties and events, and especially about the prospect of having great ice cream without having to drive to the surrounding towns!"
The Chocolate Works franchise concept is the brainchild of second-generation chocolatier and owner, Joe Whaley, a West Point graduate and Iraq war veteran, whose family has been crafting and selling high quality gourmet chocolates for over 40 years. What sets Chocolate Works apart is its unique 3-tier model for satisfying the public's sweet tooth. The combination of chocolate and candy retail, on-site parties and workshops, and custom corporate products, offers multiple opportunities to generate revenue and community relationships.
