Chugach (pronounced CHEW-gatch) Chocolates hand makes chocolates at the base of the Chugach mountain range in southcentral Alaska. We craft chocolate bars with two overlapping missions:
Chugach Chocolates began in 2011 by two fourth generation chocolatiering brothers, Marcus and Robert, in the Day Lodge of Alyeska Ski Resort in Girdwood. Soon after starting the business, Robert moved out of state. In 2016, when Marcus moved out of state, business ownership changed to its current owners, Ryan and Emily. A bit after the purchase, they moved production to a small chocolate factory in Anchorage. In 2020, Chugach Chocolates moved into a newly built, larger chocolate factory in midtown Anchorage.
We’re still getting settled into our new Anchorage chocolate factory, but we have big plans for the future - like tours, chocolate making classes, and a tasting room. We’re also hoping to move at least part of the business back to Girdwood. For now, we’re continuing to focus on making exceptional chocolates with Alaskan flavors and ingredients. Have any ideas, thoughts or comments for us? If so, don’t hesitate to get in touch here!
