Hello Kaleidoscope Friends!!
I am so excited to begin yet another chapter on this journey to a successful small business! Kaleidoscope Chocolate Shoppe & Wine Bar is a dream come true for me and my children, and we are so happy to have found just the right location, team, and customers to help us succeed! I went from a stay at home mom with an on again off again home candy business, to a single mom of three with my first brick and mortar. I’m still trying to find a way to work in my philosophy teaching background, but so far it is only to answer the “why can’t I have more chocolate, Mom” questions from my kiddos!
It has been a tough summer, not just for my business, but for many others in our community. Kaleidoscope is just four months new, and we are still finding our way! That being said, our chocolates are all hand made on site with a smooth Belgian chocolate as our prime ingredient. We have baked desserts, cookies, brownies, cupcakes: the lemon filled vanilla cupcakes are awesome! Our wine list is growing and improving each week to broaden our unique “Tastings & Truffles” offering that allows our customers to sample four different wines paired with four sample truffles all while staying local!
Sandwiches, salads, and cheese/appetizer plates have recently been added to our menu. We are your stop for local truffles, slow cooked caramels, and other sweet treats that can be packaged in gift boxes or taken on the go! Our Family Happy Hour is a great way to spend time with your family in a cozy home environment, while you enjoy a glass of wine as your kids try to decide on which treat they want to enjoy.
We are beginning to host many events as well. Now that the website is up and running, you can check out our events page for what we have going on each week. Birthday parties, girls’ nights out, small group meet ups, wine tasting, Pop Up sales, and more! I hope you all come in and check out all the wonderful my little slice of heaven has to offer!
Hooray to the work of Jenny Stoffel and her website development business Wired Pinecone! I am so grateful to have this part of Kaleidoscope Chocolate Shoppe & Wine Bar complete!
Keep Calm and Chocolate On!
