Master Konditor-Confiseur, André Bollier, and his wife Elsbeth first opened André’s in 1955. The couple emigrated from Switzerland to Kansas City to open a traditional Swiss Confiserie as the first of its kind in the Midwest, producing only the highest quality confections in the Swiss tradition. René Bollier, grandson of André, is honored to take the business into its third generation. Like his father and grandfather before him, René trained in Switzerland where he immersed himself in the art of Swiss techniques and classic recipes. While honoring that tradition, René is known for bringing his personal passion, ingenuity and pride to create distinctive chocolate experiences that can only be found at André’s.
“Since the beginning, our family has had a passion for creating luxury chocolate candies. My grandfather, father, and myself have strived to create the very best products using only the highest quality ingredients. This passion is one of the main reasons whyAndré’s has been a successful family business for three generations.” said Rene Bollier, owner of André’s Confiserie Suisse. “We’re very excited to debut our new packaging that features a traditional Swiss scherenschnitte design.Like the detailed art of scherenschnitte, we strive to bring the same precision and beauty to chocolate making.”
