Our Entrepreneur Presenters for September 11, 2022:

Rachel Kellner and Mark Libertini are the owners of Aigner Chocolates, bringing old world chocolate making into the 21st century! “Founded in 1930, Aigner Chocolates is one of the oldest chocolate and confectionery shops in NYC. Owned by the same family for three generations, the Aigners have recently passed the recipes and traditions of chocolate making to the new owners, Mark Libertini and Rachel Kellner. Rachel and Mark bought the Aigner Chocolates shop in 2015 and within four weeks they redecorated, produced and packaged in time to open 10 days before Halloween of 2015. Mark and Rachel plan on continuing the rich tradition of making Austrian style chocolate using the same antique equipment and techniques that has made Aigner a New York City institution. Mark and Rachel are honored to be a part of generations of tradition and hope to help create new traditions in the years to come.” Aigner Chocolates was voted best chocolate shop in New York and sells (and ships) chocolate barks, cordials, and marshmallows that are made using the kitchen’s original kettles and spoons.
