Rose City Chocolates was founded in 2002 in Boonton, New Jersey, a town famous for its rose gardeners. The company was the vision of Gene, who fell in love with Belgian Chocolates after a visit to Belgium. He discovered a small, family-owned chocolatier in central Belgium who makes the best and freshest chocolates in Belgium. He returned to the United States and set about bringing these divine candies to this country and to the internet.
In 2005, he opened a retail store in Historic Downtown Boonton where the business flourished both on the internet and as a source of Belgian Chocolates in the greater New York City Metropolitan area. As the business grew, the attractions of chocolates made in Belgium became apparent to the growing Vegan Community in the United States. See our Vegan Chocolate page for more information on our Vegan confections.
In 2006, he hired the future owners of the company to create Vegan Chocolates in this country using Belgian Chocolate. The Artisan American line was created to satisfy the demands of the growing Vegan community. In 2010, the business moved to Martinsburg, WV where it is now in the care of Brenda & Charlie. These two dedicated chocolate lovers had been creating and selling chocolates since 1985.
Rose City Chocolates are still available in Boonton, New Jersey at Bobby's Main Street News & Gifts. He is located at 516 Main Street in Historic Downtown Boonton See our retail location page for complete details and a map.
In 2011, Rose City Chocolates introduced several new Vegan confections including the Truffles Genevievetm line of Vegan truffles and a line of Vegan flavored caramels and Puppy Pawstm. These two lines helped propel Rose City Chocolates to the forefront of Vegan Chocolatiers in this country.
