Schakolad Closes

But hopes to return

by Sabine Bickford

From the September, 2018 issue

Schakolad Chocolate Factory closed its doors abruptly and permanently in late July. Since 2003, it had made a large selection of intricate chocolate treats at its store at Washington and Main.

Schakolad founder and president Edgar Schaked writes "the landlord raised the rent considerably and the franchisee was not able to continue to operate at the rental rate the landlord was asking. The franchisee looked for other locations in the Ann Arbor area, however, he was not able to find anything suitable at this time."

The Ann Arbor store was the only Schakolad in Michigan, but if you're really craving some bonbons, the Florida-based company still has stores in Ohio and Indiana. And if you have a space for rent, or want to be in the business yourself, Schaked would like to hear from you.

"Schakolad ... has been in Ann Arbor since 2002 and has a big following there, so we would love to re-open in Ann Arbor either with our current franchisee or with a different franchisee in the future," he writes.     (end of article)
