Starting from scratch...

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I decided to start Café Chocolat after spending a solid amount of time behind a corporate desk in the chocolate industry.  Although I had worked directly with confectioners and chocolate stores, nothing had prepared me for the astounding work that entails opening your own brick and mortar store.   

One thing I have learned and I now share often with anyone who dreams of opening their own chocolate shop, or coffee shop ...or any type of food-related stores is that: "It takes double the time, and double the money you thought it would!"   ...I read this in a blog, and it is probably the best piece of information for anyone starting out.
