Brooklyn's Mast Brothers Plan London ExpansionMonday, June 02, 2014
The locavore Brooklyn siblings behind cult chocolate company Mast Brothers are bringing their small-batch business abroad.
Mast Brothers, started in Williamsburg in 2007 by the bearded Michael and Rick Mast, has been quietly expanding in recent months. The company, which recently built a second factory next to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, is now constructing one in London.
"We're already selling our chocolate bars all throughout Europe, but we never want to be just another chocolate bar on a shelf," Rick Mast said in an interview Saturday.
