In 1937, Florent Van Hecke opened a chocolate shop in Koestraat in Ghent. Driven by the same passion, his son Arthur succeeded him. In 1988, his son Florent, the third generation, took over the shop. He expanded the chocolate business to sell cakes, pastries and ice cream. The elaborate chocolate cakes soon became a great success. Five years ago, Florent’s son Stephen became a partner in the business. In 2014 the shop was extended to include a charming tearoom and terrace. Chocolate workshops are also organised on request. After 75 years, the business’ mission remains to deliver high-quality products that give chocolate lovers ‘A Taste Of Enjoyment In Life’.
