Ghirardelli Chocolate Team BuildingWe were honored to host another Team Building event, this time for the fun team from Ghirardelli Chocolate. You love their chocolate but do you know their history?
In 1849, during the California Gold Rush, Italian-born Domingo Ghirardelli moved to America and opened a store in a mining camp. After discovering the miners were starved for luxuries and needed something to spend their gold dust on, he starting stocking chocolate delicacies. In 1852, the enterprising immigrant founded a confectionery shop in San Francisco, which eventually became the modern-day Ghirardelli Chocolate Company.
Today, they are America’s oldest continuously operating chocolate maker. Our products are sold in stores everywhere and online, and we also have our own chocolate and ice cream shops across the country. We continue to build on our rich tradition of quality products and innovation, from the launch of our now-famous filled SQUARES in the late 1990s to the 2014 debut of minis chocolates, a shareable, on-the-go treat.
