Owner, Canady Le Chocolatier Ltd.

For three and a half years Michael Canady, and his sweet emporium,
Canady Le Chocolatier Limited, have thrilled Chicago residents with
delectable chocolate delicacies. The candy shop located in Chicago’s
South Loop, houses both production and retail on-site and produces an
exquisite assortment of gourmet artisan chocolates daily. Canady offers
everything from chocolate mousses to homemade gelatos, making his
company a local favorite.


“We make our own products.
Everything is made here and that makes us very unique because nothing
is [bought] from another source. I think that the current generation is
not terribly familiar with what it is like to experience eating a fresh
chocolate that has been made … in the past week as opposed to one
that was made two months ago,” says Canady.

Having spent more than 15 years working for an overseas oil company,
the chocolate maker visited some of Europe’s finest sweet shops while
researching his new craft. “Artisan chocolates are an art form and this
is what we enjoy doing, creating different flavors, different shapes,
doing different textures, and for that reason, I think we can compete
with larger companies simply because we are also very good,” boasts
Canady.


The shop’s selection also includes chocolate covered almonds and hazel
nuts, gelato-filled cannolis and capuccino. Canady Le Chocolatier
Limited is setting the bar for top tier chocolate shops. –jason thompson
