About Peterbrooke Chocolatier
Love fuels the Peterbrooke Chocolatier franchise, transforming the age-old art of fine European chocolate making into a cherished American experience by combining old-world techniques and processes with the very best ingredients to produce a wide variety of American-style confections. From traditional favorites like truffles and cherry cordials to specialties such as chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, and strawberries, hand-dipped daily with our own special blend of delicious and decadent chocolates. Coupling a strong business model with decades of experience in the industry, Peterbrooke Chocolatier's success is rooted in a love for what we do.
Values & History
Peterbrooke Chocolatier has been hand-making delicious confections of all kinds since 1983, beginning when Phyllis Lockwood Geiger opened her own shop in Jacksonville, FL. The shop was named after her son and daughter, Peter and Brooke, and the brand's commitment to quality began immediately with Phyllis putting her fondness for chocolate and knowledge of the craft to work for local neighborhoods in search of quality chocolate treats. In 2007 Kevin and Jami Wray purchased the brand, now locally owning and operating the Orlando location, and spreading their commitment to quality across the nation with franchise opportunities under the Peterbrooke Chocolatier brand, with more than 20 shops currently in operation.
The chocolate industry in the US is worth around $22 billion, with seasonal candy purchases accounting for over 21% of sales. As of 2014, the industry has seen an annual growth of 2.9% on average. Year-to-year growth for seasonal purchases averaged 8.5%, with confectionary stores and shops taking roughly 5% of all sales.
