TORRANCE, CA, USA, August 10, 2023/ — Renowned chocolate company, Marsatta Chocolate, proudly announces the grand opening of its flagship Experience Centre in downtown Old Torrance. Scheduled for Saturday, August 12th, 2023, the grand opening marks a significant milestone in the company’s relentless pursuit of chocolate perfection.

Founded in 2003, Marsatta Chocolate has been on a mission to provide customers with unparalleled experiences through the sumptuous lens of chocolate. Originating with a love for chocolate and heritage from the French Alsace region, Chef Jeffray Gardner, the founder and CEO, has spent two decades transforming the company into a leader in bean-to-bar chocolate on the west coast.

“For 20 years, Marsatta was founded with a vision to provide customers with the very best experience possible in chocolate. My French Alsace heritage and Canadian upbringing has guided me in creating an experience that I truly believe is the best in the world,” remarked Chef Jeffray Gardner.

In 2007, Marsatta began its journey into the world of Bean-to-Bar chocolate, embracing a process that allows the company to directly source raw cacao beans and meticulously transform them into high-quality chocolate. The result is an exclusive product that highlights the importance of quality, traceability, and innovation.

Naomi Gardner, COO of Marsatta Chocolate, shared her thoughts on the Experience Centre: “We have listened to our customers and learned the importance of a brick-and-mortar store for creating a memorable experience. This flagship store is our vision for future store designs across Southern California. It’s a place where customers can learn more about our innovation and our bean-to-bar process. The new location gives allows for easy pick-up of online orders, with the convenience access to a lot of parking.”
