The sweet creation of two families, La Cascade du Chocolat is owned and operated by chocolatiers Samantha Brown and Thomas Nash. Sam and Tom met when Tom became Sam’s apprentice at a shop in New Hampshire. They quickly bonded over their chocolate passion and began experimenting and creating chocolates together.
While they were both dreaming of someday opening their own storefront, Sam’s family had a life altering moment when their house caught fire and they lost most of their personal belongings. While horrible, the fire reminded them that life is too short and fueled Sam and Tom’s families to go for it and start their own business. Sam and Tom began by selling their handmade chocolates at markets, before finally opening their first store, The Exeter Chocolate House, in Exeter, New Hampshire. Newburyport’s La Cascade du Chocolat followed, opening its doors in 2019.
