Meet Our Owner - Dave Knoke
If Dave Knoke ever wrote a motivational book, it might never mention the word ‘chocolate’. Well, maybe in the later chapters of the book, it would come up. This photo of Dave and his daughter, Skyler, pretty much sums up Dave’s belief on business ownership, success, and life. In the words of Dave – “It doesn’t matter what you are doing in life. Maybe you make chocolates, maybe you milk cows, and maybe you work on power lines. If you are getting up and putting in an honest day’s work, that is success.” It is this belief that has moved the former Knoke’s Confections into the multi-location business of Knoke’s Chocolates and Nuts that we know today. Long time customers will remember seeing Dave at the chocolate machines at all hours of the day and night in our Downtown Hudson store for years. Getting bigger hasn’t changed the way we make Chocolates! Every caramel, truffle, and turtle is still hand-made by Dave Knoke and his staff that loves chocolates and nuts as much as you do! Dave welcomes you all to the new Knoke’s online experience with hopes that our core values can be felt to all of you online as strongly as to those customers who are able to step into our stores. We welcome you to the Knoke’s family and look forward to serving you!
