Renowned Belgian chocolate brand Godiva will open its first Sydney store in Westfield Chatswood on 11 November.

Customers will be able to purchase an extensive selection of hand-crafted Belgian chocolate from the boutique or enjoy beverages and soft-serve ice cream at the cafe and store.

“We wanted to give this customer base the chance to experience the wonder of Godiva in person, in particular, our food and beverage menu that allows them to experience our Belgian flavours in a new way,” says Retail Manager Haley Koo.

Godiva’s entire chocolate range includes top-selling items such as the Gold Collection, which consists of chocolates covering ganache, caramel, praline, fruit, nuts in milk as well as dark and white chocolate.

To celebrate the launch, the store will be giving away free soft-serve ice creams to its first 500 customers. 

Ice cream will be served in an Australian-made waffle cone, dipped in chocolate sauce and sprinkled with almonds.

Beverages will encompass tea crushes, coffee, hot chocolates and the brand’s signature Chocolixirs.

The chocolatier has announced further expansion plans in the country, with five additional stores to open next year.

Godiva Chatswood will open seven days a week.
