A Passion for Excellence
From a handful of employees willing to “work for chocolate”, to a second-generation family-owned company with over 150 people during peak-season, Lake Champlain Chocolates has always been in pursuit of extraordinary chocolate moments, for our customers, ourselves, and our employees.
Working at a Chocolate Factory
It’s pretty sweet. Like a great assortment of chocolate, each unique individual contributes something special to the quality and excellence of our product. Together our richly diverse and hard-working team, helps to build an amazing community through collaboration, innovation, honesty, respect, and enthusiasm. As passionate foodies we love what we do and the proof is in the chocolate.
Making extraordinary chocolate can be hard work. Our generous benefits program encourages and supports employees to live their best lives by offering traditional as well as innovative opportunities to maintain a healthy and vibrant life. Oh yeah, and it includes lots of great chocolate!
Working together to...
- Amaze our customers
- Encourage excellence
- Value each other's well-being
