Maker Kaap's

Maker Details In 1907, Otto Kaap made his first batch of chocolates in his store on bustling Main Street, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. At first, Otto struggled to make his new business a success, working as a bank teller and a percussionist in a Vaudeville orchestra, while perfecting his chocolates. He would come in late night to make his chocolates so they would be fresh when he opened his doors in the morning. Soon Kaap's Old World Chocolates became a Green Bay landmark for its European style, old-world atmosphere and wonderful chocolates.
