About Us

grahams-familyHomemade. Hand dipped. That was the goal of Robert Untiedt when he first opened Graham’s Chocolates in December of 1987. Since then he has expanded Graham’s into two retail shops and one coffee shop, and with his two daughters on the rise, it has truly become a family-run business. After discovering his true passion for all things chocolate, he began working full-time under some of the best chocolatiers in the midwest before deciding to open his own store. But where? Location, location, location. After searching for the right place for his store, he settled on beautiful downtown Geneva. A place rich in history, small shops and devoted sidewalk traffic.

Robert & his wife Beckie live just a short 5 minutes from the store. Robert still runs the stores, and you can find him in the kitchen with a white chef coat on and his wife Beckie is really the heart and soul of the beautifying aspect of the stores. Their daughters Jayni & Maddi are both married & live nearby. Daughter Jayni graduated from Columbia College Chicago and works as Graham’s premier graphic designer and pastry chef for their coffeeshop fulltime and Maddi is a graduate of Valparaiso University and now works full-time as the company secretary. As a family, the Untiedt’s have so much to be thankful for, and without wonderful customers who really believe in this business, they would not be where they are today. So thank you!
