For more than a century, giving has been making people happy

Over 100 years ago, Leonidas Kestekides first started working on our praline as we know it today. For four generations the Kestekides family made its mark on Leonidas, making this brand a real family business. What started out life as a single shop with a sliding sash window, where pralines were displayed on the window sill, has evolved into an international brand experience with more than 1300 shops. Now, everyone enjoys the delicious Leonidas creations. Read all about this chocolate revolution here.
