Rococo was founded in March 1983 by Chantal Coady. Coady graduated in Textile Design (Camberwell School of Art & Crafts) in 1981, and went on to complete an MSC Small Business Course. Armed with a little knowledge, a dangerous passion for chocolate and a belief that there was room for a radically different approach to chocolate, she decided to open a shop on the King’s Road (Chelsea, London). Now, the author of three books about chocolate, Coady still pushes forward the boundaries of chocolate retailing, with 3 shops in London. The flagship store is at Motcomb St, in the heart of Belgravia.
In Queen’s 2014 honours list, Chantal was awarded an OBE for Services to Chocolate!
