Dandelion Chocolate to Open Later This Month on Valencia

The new retail space and café, with factory in back.

A first ever retail outlet for local artisans Dandelion Chocolate is arriving at 740 Valencia, next door to Abbot's Cellar, hopefully by the end of October. The Chron profiles the company, founded by tech guys Todd Masonis and Cameron Ring two years ago and originally sold at the Underground Farmers Market. The new space will also house a café and factory for the company, relocating their production facility from the Dogpatch space they currently use. Also, as of now, their chocolate is available online and at 50 retailers around the country, including Bi-Rite, Rainbow, and Four Barrel. [Chron, Earlier]
