In 1926, when our founder Joseph Draps opened his first GODIVA Chocolatier shop in Brussels, Belgium, Godiva became the chocolatier of choice in Belgium and the talk of the chocolate world.
After years of being exclusive to Belgium, Draps began the international GODIVA expansion in 1958 by opening a GODIVA boutique in Paris on the fashionable Rue St. Honoré. Openings in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and more soon followed.
Then in 1966, GODIVA traveled across the pond to the United States, where GODIVA became available at one of the country’s most elegant department stores, Wanamaker’s in Philadelphia. Six years later, the first stateside GODIVA boutique opened on New York’s fashionable Fifth Avenue.
Today the GODIVA brand is known—and loved—in over 80 countries around the world. GODIVA owns and operates more than 450 boutiques and shops worldwide, where you can find a comprehensive selection of our offerings. GODIVA products are also available at finer department and specialty stores. Additionally, GODIVA issues seasonal mail-order catalogs in North America, and accepts phone and Internet orders. From New York to Paris, Tokyo to Dubai, it is GODIVA that brings the best of Belgium to the world.
