First Hotel Chocolat Store in Japan Opens

Hotel Chocolat is pleased to announce the opening of the first Hotel Chocolat store in Japan, at the Aeon Lake Town shopping mall in Tokyo, the largest mall in Japan.

Angus Thirlwell, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hotel Chocolat, said:

"The reaction to Hotel Chocolat in Japan on our first day of trading last week was hugely encouraging. Customer engagement, media attention and sales performance were all well ahead of expectations. Our portfolio of products landed with aplomb. Hot chocolat drinks, our 8g sculpted chocolate batons, and our Selector range were all in high demand. We look forward to unfolding the brand further here."
