It seems like 2016 was just yesterday and we were meticulously preparing for our launch party at the Iron Roost in Ballston Spa.
Most of you probably didn’t know us back then – we were just a couple of chocolate loving dreamers with a two year old, two full-time “real jobs” and an idea to go into business together. We spent months laboring over chocolate sourcing, recipe development, equipment procurement and brand design. Then, in one night, we went from concept to reality. Surrounded by friends and family, over a table of chocolate pairings and my dad’s homemade baguettes, we celebrated our launch and sold our very first chocolate bars.
Now here we are three years later! We are both full-time chocolatiers. Our daughter is in kindergarten! We participate in 9 area farmers markets; wholesale to over 65 regional specialty food stores, and have a growing online presence. We grew from 5 flavors of chocolate bars and 2 barks to 13 flavors of chocolate bars, 3 barks, 3 hot chocolates and too many specialty products to count!
Best of all we have come to meet so many of you – our loyal supporters, fans and new friends. So it is with a humble heart, full of gratitude, that we say thank YOU for your support over these past three years. We wouldn’t be here without you. Here’s to many more years of sweet surprises!
Love and Chocolate, Alli & Hank
