March 2nd Lunch Meeting
March 2, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$30.00
Speaker: Connie Lawson, Sweet Ashley’s Chocolate
Sweet Ashley’s chocolate is all about love… for our products, our family, our business, and our country. We are a small business born of a childhood passion, grown through a family vision, sustained through hard work, and supported by other American small businesses. Of course, at our core, Sweet Ashley’s Chocolate is about chocolate: the “good chocolate,” the kind that melts on the tongue, and lingers on the taste buds with a rich, smooth flavor that’s almost heaven.
Sweet Ashley’s founder, Connie Lawson, became enamored with chocolate making after a childhood trip to a chocolate factory. Convinced she could make chocolate on her own, she started experimenting. Before long, Connie was creating hand-made chocolate gifts for friends and family, a tradition that continued for many years. After disappointing her family with store-bought chocolate one year, Connie and her husband Rob established Sweet Ashley’s Chocolates with a retail store in Royersford. They’ve been hand-making chocolate ever since, creating classic favorites and devising new concoctions. Today, Sweet Ashley’s Chocolates operates from a retail location in Limerick, and a chocolate kitchen and production location nearby. In addition to retail sales, Sweet Ashley’s chocolates are available to wholesale and corporate clients.
On March 2nd, Connie will share how the business was created from a love of chocolate, named as it is, secrets of success, lessons from failures, and has grown by leaps and bounds even through the pandemic.
