Swiss chocolatier Läderach opens 3 Long Island locations

Chocolate shops on LI

Shopping at the malls just got sweeter — literally. Swiss chocolatier Läderach (pronounced lae-der-ackh) has opened its first three locations, on Long Island, NY, replacing Godiva Chocolatier at Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station and Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. Nathanael Hausmann, the company’s president, said Läderach was expanding to Long Island brick-and-mortar shops after seeing strong interest from the region in its online sales. Läderach was launched in 1962 by Rudolf Läderach Jr. in Glarus, Switzerland. From its inception, the company has maintained complete control of the chocolate-making process, from harvesting cocoa straight to its creations. The Läderach family is in its third generation of operating the company, which has more than 100 stores worldwide, including two Manhattan locations.
