Specialty chocolate company Kate Weiser Chocolate has opened its third location, and first in Fort Worth at the Shops at Clearfork. The company’s first Fort Worth location joins a Northpark counter that opened in late 2016, and the original shop located in West Dallas’ Trinity Groves.
Kate Weiser grew her business from making a few pieces of chocolate at home to currently producing almost 18,000 bonbons per week in addition to her specialty seasonal treats including pumpkins and candy-filled skulls for Halloween, and the famous “Carl the Snowman,” a drinking chocolate snowman made out of dark chocolate, stuffed with powdered drinking chocolate mix and mini marshmallows.
“We are excited to serve new customers in Fort Worth while still being close to home in Trinity Groves,” said Kate Weiser, owner of Kate Weiser Chocolate. “The team at Trinity Groves has been extremely supportive of me and my vision and I couldn’t have done this without them. It’s exciting to expand to a new market that allows me to introduce my product to new customers.”
Kate Weiser Chocolate is the first Trinity Groves concept to expand from the West Dallas restaurant development into a second stand-alone store front.
“When you become a partner with Trinity Groves, we give you the support you need to be successful – whether it’s with one, two or multiple locations for your concept,” said Bob Sambol, operations manager at Trinity Groves. “The biggest benefit of Trinity Groves is that we ask only for your sweat equity. The owner-operator opens a second location with no personal liability, just like the first. We take care of the lease, financing, and credit with vendors while you focus on living out your dream.”
“Kate Weiser is the epitome of why we started Trinity Groves,” said Phil Romano, owner of Trinity Groves. “There’s nothing better than helping a true visionary and entrepreneur get their start, expanding their footprint and seeing the success they become. Kate’s hard work, passion and dedication is inspiring, and we are excited for what the future holds for her.”
Kate Weiser’s Fort Worth location will feature all of Kate Weiser’s 26 signature bonbons in unique flavors like Strawberry Basil, Mango Habanero, Sweet Potato and Red Wine & Berries, handcrafted candy bars, homemade chocolate bars and seasonal treats. Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10AM – 9PM, and Sunday Noon to 6PM. The store phone number is 682-703-8125. To learn more, visit kateweiserchocolate.com.
