Throughout the last year, our business has taken on a form of its own. Since we started making chocolate straight from the bean, we have not been able to produce chocolates, roast coffees, run the cafe, keep everything constantly stocked, and spend adequate time with our kids, friends, and family. Because of the success of our products, we recently decided to close the energy-draining cafe and reshape our business to better suit the demand for our products, the needs of our local community, and to help fulfill our own personal goals.
We will be reopening our doors on October 1st as a Middlebury Chocolates retail shop… the first of several planned around the state! We will be a community oriented shop, not only featuring our own products, but also specialty goods from other local producers and incredible pieces from local artists. We hope to show off the best of Middlebury to visitors, as well as offer a comfortable environment for our local friends and patrons, and provide a prosperous outlet for local producers.
Thanks to everyone for your support, and we hope to see you at 52 Main Street on October 1st!
Stephanie & Andy Jackson
