Noosa factory bringing chocolate to Southern Queensland

Noosa Chocolate Factory General manager, Nick Southon.

When prime position in the prestigious Brisbane Arcade recently became available, the team at Noosa Chocolate Factory knew it was the perfect location for their next Brisbane store.

No sooner than the doors opened than a steady stream of chocolate lovers flooded in to enjoy the freshly brewed coffee and their signature Rocky Road that was made the Friday before.

Noosa Chocolate Factory General manager, Nick Southon said, “Our chocolates are made fresh every week and people know that when you buy from us you are guaranteed a fresh, great tasting locally made product that hasn’t been sitting on the shelves for weeks or months.

The Noosa Chocolate Factory was established in 2009 and is the manufacturing facility for all Noosa Chocolate Factory products. The factory specialises in panned, slab and moulded products, and conducts research into the creation of new products and chocolate trends.

And with two stores already operating in the heart of Brisbane CBD, Mr Southon said, when this location became available the decision to open a third store in close proximity to the others was an easy decision.

“Both stores in Adelaide Street are continuously busy and they primarily attract the corporate market. We knew the location of this store, which is right at the entrance of The Brisbane Arcade, would attract retail shoppers and those out for a nice day in the city – and we were right.

“The moment the doors opened this week, we have seen a steady stream of shoppers coming in to stock up on all their favourites, enjoy a coffee and start their Christmas shopping early.”

With a wide array of chocolates including tasty vegan options that are as good as any of the milk-based products, the Noosa Chocolate Factory’s signature product is undoubtedly their Rocky Road.

Delivered fresh to their stores twice a week, it is a crowd pleasure to watch these large blocks cut into their package sizes that literally walk off the shelves the same day.

“Every element of our Rocky Road is created by our team using our own recipes for the chocolate, the jelly and the marshmallow. As a result, it has a subtle flavour that is light and fresh. People come from far and wide just to buy it and it’s one of our first products to sell out each day,” Mr Southon said.

The new store is located at The Brisbane Arcade, 160 Queens Street, Brisbane and is open seven days a week.
