Venchi, a celebrated Italian chocolatier with a limited presence in the United States, is about to make its Florida debut with two upcoming locations in Town Center at Boca Raton and the Aventura Mall.

The origins of Venchi date back to 1878 when a 20-year-old Silviano Venchi embarked on a chocolate-making journey. Investing all his savings in two bronze cauldrons, he started experimenting with chocolate in a small shop in Vanchiglia, Turin.

In just a few years, Venchi had established his own shop in Piedmont and introduced the world to Nougatine, a delightful sweet made from chopped and caramelized hazelnuts coated in rich, extra-dark chocolate. Today, with 180 locations worldwide, Venchi boasts an impressive collection of 250 chocolate recipes and offers 90 flavors of gelato.

Venchi is renowned for its premium-quality chocolate, and its product range includes gift boxes, chocolate bars, chocolate spreads, chocolate cigars, and sweetened and unsweetened cocoa powder. These offerings can be used for cooking, sprinkling on fruit or yogurt, stirring into oatmeal, or simply enjoying as a comforting cup of hot chocolate.

The brand's retail stores, known as ChocoGelaterias, will feature a wide array of Italian-made chocolates, along with freshly made gelato, hazelnut and chocolate spread crepes, hot chocolate, and European-style coffee, as per a Town Center news release.

The Boca Raton location is set to open its doors in January, while the Aventura Mall store is expected to follow suit in the first quarter of the year. Venchi's expansion into South Florida marks a significant milestone for the brand, as it had previously operated exclusively in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, as indicated on its website.
