Guittard Chocolate Company is one of the original chocolate companies of San Francisco, established during the Gold Rush. Many local chocolatiers use Guittard chocolate to make their artisanal candies, and Guittard also has its own line of bean-to-bar single origin and blended bars.

This is company headquarters and also the factory for specialty and limited-edition products with vintage equipment and proprietary processes. The main factory is in Fairfield, but neither location is open to the public.


There’s no retail store here or tour of the facilities, but the area around the factory smells amazing. Take a seat in the small courtyard and breathe in the delicious chocolate aroma.
