After Domingo died, William Roth turned Ghirardelli Square into a market place. The unique shops and restaurants were created within the old factory combining the latest in retailing and fine cuisine with the flavor of Old San Francisco.They sell 100 chocolates or more a day, but they sell more drinks and sundaes, than chocolate. The chocolate manufacturing operation was sold and transferred to San Leandro in 1960. They added a restaurant in 1964.
