Welcome to the new page for The Chocolate Shoppe! On September 4, 2009, The Chocolate Shoppe opened it's small storefront in Utica, IL (Starved Rock). After 4-1/2 years in this quaint little tourist town, the Groff family decided to move The Chocolate Shoppe to their hometown of Yorkville, IL.
After nearly 3 years in Yorkville, the Groff family took over a grocery delivery service in September 2016 and combined both businesses into what is now known as Valley Fresh Market. Valley Fresh Market opened on November 5, 2016.
Former customers of The Chocolate Shoppe will be happy to learn that we have continued to make our delicious chocolates and confections; just on a smaller scale. What used to be a store creating over 300 chocolates is now a full-service grocery store, bakery and chocolate shop providing the top 50 best-selling chocolates from The Chocolate Shoppe.
All of our amazing confections are created by owner and chocolatier, Andie Groff. We use the finest all-natural non-GMO and/or certified organic ingredients, including premium Belgian chocolate, to bring you the freshest and purest form of chocolate available on the market today. All of our chocolates are made in a 100% gluten free facility.
We offer a variety of allergy-friendly chocolates, including nut free, dairy free, and vegan options, which are made on separate equipment to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination in our kitchen.
