The Sweetest place on the Central Coast
The story of ‘The Factory’ begins in 1982 with ‘Bon Bon Fine Chocolate’, a tiny store in Sydney’s harbourside suburb of Double Bay. The little shop quickly became known and loved for its supply of fine chocolates, both handmade and carefully chosen imports from the best European boutiques.
Our owner and director Andrew, was captivated by the local store and fell in love with the world of fine chocolate. He decided to dedicate his life’s work to expand Bon Bon to a wider audience.
His passion and drive established him as the store manager in the late 1990’s, and in 2000 he headed the opening of a second store in Sydney’s iconic ‘Queen Victoria Building’. In July 2010, Bon Bon Fine Chocolates opened a more spacious store at the historic ‘Strand Arcade’, in the heart of Sydney.
In February 2015, the decision was made to relocate ‘Bon Bon Fine Chocolate’ to join its sister product, ‘Nougat Limar’. ‘Nougat Limar’ has been manufacturing on the Central Coast since 2007, the ultra modern facility covers over 2000m².
With ‘Bon Bon Fine Chocolate’, ‘Nougat Limar’ and ‘Sydney Marshmallow Company’ under the one roof, our family grew, and the building was buzzing with life. Locals began to refer to it as ‘The Factory’ and the name stuck like toffee on a hot day.
Our guided ‘Factory Tours’, ‘Junior Chocolatier Workshops’ and cafe are all closed until further notice although our huge retail shop is still open (details back page).
