KAPITI CHOCOLATE factory
The chocolate factory has been at the site in Raumati for over 25 years. Originally started in Masterton by Lenore Nysse, her son, Steve Nysse brought the operation over to Kapiti under the name Nyco Chocolates.
Known for its colourful exterior and the large familiar model train in the factory shop, many Wellingtonians and Kapiti Coasters have fond memories of visiting the factory in their childhood
Nyco Chocolates was bought by Chocolate Brown in 2017 and then sold to Sarah and James and rebranded to Kapiti Chocolate Factory. Even though it has had a few changes in name and ownership, many of the old recipes and favourites are still made on site today and some of the staff have been there since the first years of operation.
