ROY chocolatier in Paris is above all a great story of passionate men and women, real chocolate lovers and respectful of our French expertise.
The Opening of a Chocolate Shop In Paris
The origins of the chocolate shop in Paris date back to 1948, when Ms. ROY opened a small chocolate store at 27 rue de Longchamp, a shopping and lively street in the 16th arrondissement of Paris.
The owner of ROY chocolatier was a real celebrity in the neighborhood: even today we hear about her! After more than 35 years in her chocolate shop, she decided to sell it in 1984.
ROY chocolatier had already a certain reputation in the west of Paris, therefore, the name and brand were kept by Claire Leroux who bought the store in 1992.
The new owner of ROY chocolatier decided to assert the premium positioning of ROY chocolates by rigorously selecting the best traditional French chocolates and confectionery, and this for over 20 years.
Real Gourmets at Your Service!
In February 2013, it was our turn to take back the ROY chocolatier greedy inheritance, a change in our working life where everything was to discover, guided by a real passion for chocolate and taste for the finest products.
We are above all very greedy, one loves dark chocolates and praline, the other is fond of marshmallows and bitter ganaches. But our common point is to taste everything and find the best products among our fabulous French artisans. What we especially love is to share them with our customers.
ROY chocolatier is a shop rich of beautiful encounters: our regular customers, gourmets and connoisseurs that we often welcome weekly, visitors and tourists from around the world who may come only once, that we are pleased to welcome with equal enthusiasm and help them discover our French chocolates. What a pleasure to know that our small red and brown boxes will visit Japan, cross the Atlantic ocean, or to stop in Italy or in the Lebanon.
The Online Chocolate Shop
ROY chocolatier was the first online shop of chocolates in France: first chocolate boxes were delivered in January 1997!
We decided to modernize it a few months ago and add a blog to share with you our chocolate expertise, our novelties, and of course our recipes & favorites sweets.
You understood it, ROY chocolatier is us, who welcome you when you visit our shop, it is also our chocolate makers we have been working with us for more than 20 years and who keep on sharing their passion and priceless expertise for chocolate. We do not forget our ‘little helpers” who in the backstage of our shop, prepare Christmas boxes and Easter eggs for your greatest enjoyment.
