Godiva Chocolates is a global leader in premium, artisanal chocolate. The company was founded in Brussels in 1926 and nearly a century later, it continues to innovate.

The latest stage in the company's evolution comes with the debut of its first U.S.-based café in the heart of New York City. On Thursday, April 18, Godiva will hold a grand opening of its first permanent café, inviting everyone in to enjoy the festivities and taste the new café’s offerings.
