I am Ryan Novak, owner of, Chocolate Pizza Company. I lost my mom when I was 9 years-old but I promised to make her proud. At 15, I got my first job at Chocolate Pizza Company as a dishwasher. In 2010, at the age of 21 and a senior at Syracuse University, I bought the company. Since then, we have grown from a small-town chocolate shop into an emerging national brand. Our gourmet chocolate specialties have been enjoyed by A-list celebrities, hall of fame athletes, rock and roll legends, top business and political leaders and chocolate lovers on 6 continents. Women are our primary customer demographic for both personal/family special occasions and business gift categories. Our social media reach has exploded and is an important part of our business. We create handcrafted, American-made chocolate specialties that are unique, delicious and impressive. We are famous for our trademarked “Chocolate Pizza” and “Peanut Butter Wings.” Chocolate Pizza blends the highest quality Swiss-style chocolate with homemade English toffee, tops it with a variety of candies or nuts and serves it in a custom pizza box. Peanut Butter Wings are crisp, rippled potato chips covered in creamy peanut butter and drenched in rich milk or dark chocolate. Our line-up also includes beautiful gift baskets, chocolate towers, wedding favors and classic chocolate treats. We are a family business that loves competing with industry titans. Chocolate Pizza Company has been featured on Food Network, Hallmark Channel, CNBC, CMT and in Forbes, People and Entrepreneur magazines. We are small enough to personally work with every customer but large enough to handle national accounts like a 31,000 Chocolate Pizza order we took no notice from a major retailer. Chocolate Pizza Company is located near Syracuse, New York and ships nationwide, year-round. We are growing and successful but still I wake up every morning remembering my promise to make my mom proud.
