A factory shop with a chocolate workshop
LITTLE MOTHERHOUSE, which has the philosophy of “from developing countries to the world”, will open a factory shop with a chocolate workshop in Ginza, Tokyo. As a new base for production and sales, we will deliver the appeal of rich food ingredients from developing countries.
A new business format with 3 spaces: studio, shop, and cafe
The new factory shop will be the brand's flagship store with three functions: production, sales and cafe. It will be the first store as a LITTLE MOTHERHOUSE specialty store.
The workshop space where products are produced and developed is glass-enclosed, so you can always see the production process. The shop space is centered on the standard product “Irodori Chocolate”, and has a lineup that is easy to use as a gift. In addition, the cafe space offers limited sweets that can only be eaten here. Carefully selected coffee (produced in Indonesia) and tea (produced in Sri Lanka) can be taken out.
In addition to the food menu, the interior of the store is full of attention to detail, such as using Indonesian wood, and was created with the aim of creating a space where you can relax while feeling the atmosphere of the production area.
