Chocolatier and owner of Tandem Chocolates, Phyllis Robinson, celebrated the grand opening of Tandem Chocolates’ new location and first-ever storefront on Thursday, November 4th.
Celebrating her new location, at 7111 S. Virginia Street, Robinson hosted an opening with small bites and a champagne toast. Launching her newest collection, 10% of each 8-piece holiday pie box will go back to local nonprofit, Safe Embrace. Collaborating with women-owned businesses in the area and using local flavors, Robinson aims to continue to share her chocolate bon bons with the community and create a showroom and storefront for online and in-store pick-ups.
“It’s an honor to get to share my craft with the community,” said Phyllis, “This new location will allow me to continue to share sustainable and ethical chocolate with the community.”
“Safe Embrace is very close to my heart,” Phyllis shared. “This event will give back to the city I love, and I am lucky to work with an organization that puts the community first.”
