Default Re: The Great West Chocolate Company

Joseph, my wife and I owned and operated a "candy florist" ( we made hand crafted chocolates and lipops arranged in traditional floral designs, the difference being you could eat ours ) between 1990-95 so I understand your chagrin completely! We were fairly successful but it took a lot of effort and we discovered we could actually work together. I did all the cooking and made deliveries while she did the arrangements, ran the retail and wholesale shop and did the marketing. My engraving took a vacation during that time, but it was the best experience I have ever had. I often told her that "I never worked so hard for so little and enjoyed it so much" in my life.

Anyway, hope you're doing okay and life is treating you well.

Bill
