Anthon Berg is a famous Danish chocolatier who started his business in making chocolate in Copenhagen and later became famous all over the world. It all started to take off for him in the 18th century (1884) when he decided to focus on making marzipan. His talent quick became well known by the upper and middle class in Copenhagen and from then on he got a successively business in making Anthon Berg chocolate and Anthon Berg marzipan. When his son Gustav took over the business he started to focus more on worldwide marketing and because of that they became well known than ever!
Funny fact: Anthon Berg was a greengrocer before he decided to start making his delicious chocolates and marzipan.
You can never be too generous
That is the slogan of Anthon Berg. And that became his slogan because he felt for those customers who were standing and waiting in line in front of his store. His company took off so well that the customers were lined up almost every day and that made him decide one day to always give the waiting customers a little treat when standing in line. That generosity was very appreciated and made the customers come back again and again. In 2012 Anthon Berg opened world’s first store where you can only pay with generosity. You can go there and get chocolate and marzipan for free by promising a generous deed on your own Facebook. Buy chocolate with good deeds.
