The company has just completed a deal to open its first outlet in New Jersey with future openings expected in the next 18months.

The company, which is owned by the Sorensen family, was established in Dublin in 1932 and opened its first Butlers Chocolate Café in Wicklow Street, Dublin 10 years ago. It has an annual turnover in excess of €28m.
