Madelaine Chocolate Company Factory is up for Sale in the Rockaways


    The Madelaine Chocolate Company, the Rockaways business badly damaged by Sandy, put its factory up for sale. DNAinfo reports that the owners listed the building for an undisclosed price, and it’s unclear if the business will seek a new location or shutter altogether. Madelaine has operated out of Rockaway Beach since 1967.

    The business suffered from millions of dollars in damage after Hurricane Sandy and lost as much as $8 million of inventory. Madelaine reopened last July but never recovered to full operation. According to an earlier report by the Daily News, the company was in fact considering a move to another location, either in New York or elsewhere.
