Jean's son, Frederic took the company in another direction. Applying his experience as a baker the business changed course, and in 1895 the pharmacy, now called Confiserie et Chocolaterie Neuhaus-Perrin, became the premier chocolate shop in town, selling sweets, jellies and chocolate bars.

After Frederic's death in 1912, his son Jean Neuhaus Jr took over the expanding and extremely successful business. This success, allowed Jean the time to follow a creative path and after much experimentation with a technique was developed, for producing filled chocolate, which jean named the "Praline". Neuhaus has been renowned for its pralines ever since.
