Stuff we've been doing...

Author: Jim/Sunday, October 19, 2014/Categories: Updates

Here's a brief rundown of how we spent our summer vacation:



- Completed what turned out to be a 10 month search process looking for our space - we finally found the right fit!



- Leased our space on Shea Blvd near Scottsdale Rd in Agua Caliente Center in Scottsdale, AZ

- Finalized and submitted plans to the City for renovations to our space



- Began bidding the project with a few local contractors

- Continued to evaluate chocolate making equipment options, even though there aren't many for small scale makers like us

- Ordered our Cocoa Bean Roaster from US Roaster in Oklahoma City (see separate blog entry for photo)



- Received permit approval for our renovations

- Ordered our custom chocolate display case from Alternative Air in New Jersey

- Evaluated and refined contractor bids

- Took a breather (nope, didn't do that)
