JP’s Chocolate Shoppe announced today that it will be holding its Grand Opening on December 14, at 11:00 a.m., with a ribbon cutting Located at 2219 Wilton Drive, JP’s Chocolate Shoppe is the newest addition to the Wilton Manors Arts and Entertainment district.
“Like many great ideas, JP’s chocolate Shoppe was conceived on a cocktail napkin,” says co-owner, JP Cobleigh. “After many years of corporate life in New York City, I came to South Florida and was introduced to real estate broker Barry Miller through a mutual friend. He sold me a condo, became a friend and we began brainstorming a business.”
Natural ‘treasure hunters’, Cobleigh and Miller began searching for the finest collection of gourmet chocolatiers to be found in the U.S. They discovered wonderful organic chocolate products, some with no preservatives, others gluten-free, plenty of kosher certified, a few delicious sugar-free and many dark chocolates, rich with antioxidants.
“We’re offering an array of the finest handmade chocolate delicacies, fine wines paired with chocolate and gourmet gift baskets, all under one roof,” co-owner Barry Miller said excitedly. “Everything is made in America and with a focus on the environment, we use recycled packaging hoping our customers will enjoy and appreciate our efforts.”
Opening in time for the Christmas holidays, JP’s Chocolate Shoppe is a welcomed addition to Wilton Drive as the storefronts continue to fill with a variety of businesses.
“We have an abundance of food and entertainment on Wilton Drive,” said Krishan Manners, CEO and President of the Wilton Manors Development Alliance. “So when we see new retail shops opening, it’s adding to the balance we’re trying to create. We enthusiastically welcome JP’s Chocolate Shoppe to the mix of retail shops as we continue to grow Wilton Drive into a destination.”
