Founded in 1930, Aigner Chocolates is one of the oldest chocolate and confectionery shops in NYC. Owned by the same family for three generations, the Aigners have recently passed the recipes and traditions of chocolate making to the new owners, Mark Libertini and Rachel Kellner. Mark and Rachel plan on continuing the rich tradition of making Austrian style chocolate using the same antique equipment and techniques that have made Aigner a New York City institution. Mark and Rachel are honored to be a part of generations of tradition and hope to help create new traditions in the years to come.

Who needs a factory-made box of chocolates when you can get high-quality, delicious, handmade sweets for your sweetie at Aigner Chocolates? The Forest Hills chocolatier was founded in 1930 and has been making the best chocolate in Queens ever since. The business was passed through three generations of the Aigner family, starting with first generation immigrants. Using traditional, Austrian techniques, the store began with just one employee and one mixing machine. The business was carried on by the Aigner family until 2015, when the business was sold to Mark Libertini and Rachel Kellner. The couple has continued the rich tradition and has upheld Aigner Chocolates’ reputation as the chocolatier in Queens.
