Canadian Chocolate Company Chewters Building public-view plant in Rockwall

Canadian Chocolatier Opening Manufacturing Plant in Rockwall

Chewters Chocolates plans to develop a 189,000 square foot facility on 10.6 acres at the Rockwall Technology Park. The company is expecting to invest more than $40 million into the project.

The new facility will feature up to four chocolate production lines, warehousing, office space and a small retail store. Chewters Chocolates also plans to provide guided tours with glass viewing halls.

Chewters has hired design-build firm DB Constructors of Fort Worth to construct the new plant. The project is still in the design phase and site plan approvals are pending. The company plans to break ground near the end of 2022 and hope to be operational in 2024. They expect to hire 120 people to man the facility. Texas Governor Greg Abbott touted the sweet deal, “Chewters Chocolates’ expansion into Texas is a major boon for our economy and the hardworking people of Rockwall, and I look forward to a continued partnership with the company as we create greater economic opportunities and brighter futures for all Texans.”
