Dear Zotter Fans and Chocolate Lovers,

Three weeks ago today, we were sitting in closets, under stairways, in bathtubs, cars – trying to be as safe as possible from Hurricane Ian. It was absolutely terrifying, and we were hoping this nightmare might end. It was a long, terrible day for us – because this storm moved very slowly and left destruction everywhere.

When we went out of our homes the next day, we started slowly to realize that this would be a long road to recovery. Luckily – all of us in the Zotter Team are safe, healthy, and unharmed. We are lucky that our homes are livable and weren’t displaced as so many others in our area.

Our landlord did a fantastic job supporting us and quickly getting the minimum needed repairs done. We can’t even express how happy we are that this process went faster than we thought. Our team cleared the warehouse, and we got a new shipment in today. It’s a partial shipment. Please bear with us if your favorite bar is not available right now. We should be fully stocked again in about three weeks from now. Today’s delivery is one that was planned to arrive before the hurricane, and we were able to stop it and place it on hold to avoid an even greater loss.

We want to thank everyone who reached out to us during this time. To everyone who donated to our GoFundMe to keep Payroll going. To the Zotter Family, who supports us and helps us to get back on our feet. To our landlord who helped us a big way in repairing the damage quickly. To the Linemen that gave us Electricity back. To Norman Love, who offered us space at his facility in case we won’t be able to get back up and running for the Holidays. To everyone who placed orders in the past and as soon as we reopened the Advent Calendar Preorders last week.

Now we can start to get into the Holiday Season and hope our chocolate spreads joy and fun for everyone who follows us! We couldn’t be more grateful for this day – and we will fully recover from this!

Quick update regarding the Advent Calendar Preorders:

The preorder timeframe ended on October 16th at noon. Since then we placed the final order in Austria and we are working on getting them in as soon as possible. The originally projected shipping time frame was the 2nd week of November or maybe a bit sooner than that. For those who missed the deadline, please note that we will get a handful more than originally planned. So, there will be a possibility to order some in November. We will announce this as soon as they will be online. There will be limited availability. Please understand, that we can’t accept orders via email, chat message or Social Media comments.

You could also go here and join the wait list and you will get a notification as soon as those few are available to be ordered.
