Guittard Chocolate Company

*
Etienne Guittard founded the Guittard chocolate company. He emigrated to America from Lyon, France, during the California Gold Rush. Ten years after the gold rush had ended, in 1868. Guittard established his chocolate making company on Sansome Street on San Francisco's waterfront.

The company was carried on by Etienne's son, Horace C. Guittard. Horace was in charge in 1906 when the San Francisco earthquake levelled most of the city. The factory survived the quake, and shortly after a new factory was set up on Commercial Street, then on Main Street. In 1955, the development of the Embarcadero freeway forced the company to relocate to a new plant at the corner of Guittard and Rollins road in Burlingame, California, where it continues to produce chocolate to this day.
