A chocolaterie is a type of business which both manufactures chocolate
confections and sells them, at the same location. It is usually a
small family business, often operating at only one location. The word
is of French origin, and shops named as such are common in France and
Belgium. The term is also used to designate larger chocolate
production companies, such as
Chocolaterie Guylian, many of which
started as smaller shops. This type of store operates in other
countries, such as the US, Canada, the UK and Germany, sometimes
using the French term. Stores which sell candies and chocolate
but do not produce their own brand are called
Confectionery stores, or
other names depending on the region. The related occupational term is
chocolatier, though this term is also used sometimes to describe
chocolateries, such as Godiva Chocolatier.
As an example of the term's usage, The novel Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory was entitled Charlie et la
Chocolaterie in France. The novel
and 2000 film Chocolat are set in a chocolaterie.
