History: In 1913, Leonidas Kestekidis, a Greek immigrant to the United States, was awarded a gold medal for his chocolate at the Universal and International Exhibition in Ghent, Belgium. There he met and married a Belgian woman and began his career in “pralines.” Today, there are over 1400 Leonidas stores throughout the world.
