Astoria was founded in 2009 in Concepcion Chile and during the 1st year the company had incredible sales and everything looked rosy however destiny had a different road planned for Astoria. In February 2010 Astoria had to face unexpected challenges starting with an earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale with its epicenter in Concepcion that destroyed the 1st store. Later in 2010 a new location was opened in a shopping mall. The success of the brand and the products was again immediate from day 1 however in February 2011 just one year after reopening; the shopping center was destroyed by a fire. Once again after all the hard work and effort it seemed that fate was working against our success and discouraging our entrepreneurial spirit. In July 2011 we reopened for the 3rd time in 3 years at the same shopping mall, the response was again incredible and after the previous disasters we were 3rd time lucky.
