Fowler's Chocolates has opened two new retail locations in the Buffalo area.
The locally owned and operated manufacturer and retailer has opened a 670-square-foot store at 4278 S. Buffalo Road in Orchard Park and a 1,700-square-foot outlet at 2468 Niagara Falls Blvd., Tonawanda.
The two new operations will add 10 people to the Fowler's work force.
Ted Marks, owner of Fowler's Chocolates, said the company is dedicated to expanding both its retail and fund-raising presence throughout Western New York.
"In the past year we purchased Sweet Success Fundraising, remodeled virtually all of our locations and opened these two new stores," Marks said. "We will continue to seek out other locations that will make Fowler's fine products readily available to all chocolate lovers throughout the region."
Fowler's annual sales have more than doubled over the past three years, according to Marks.
The company operates three additional retail outlets in Buffalo, Cheektowaga and Williamsville. Its manufacturing operations are housed in the Buffalo Enterprise Development Corp.'s Can-Am Building on River Rock Drive in the city's Black Rock section.
