Pete's Chocolate Co. is an independent, small batch chocolatier based in Detroit, Michigan USA. Our products are available through local retailers, in our online store (coming soon) and occasionally at farmer's markets and events.
a note from the owner:
I began Pete's Chocolate Co. as a passion project in 2009 after returning to Detroit from a one year stay in the small city of San Cristóbal de las Casas in the southern highlands of Mexico. While in southern Mexico - the original homeland of chocolate as we know it - I studied the art of chocolate with a chocolatier named Iván Arce. Back in Detroit, I began experimenting with my own recipes for both classic and unusual flavors, using the traditional method of hand-rolling each piece to produce exceptionally delicate and rich truffles. What started as a hobby became a seasonal market business, and over the subsequent years Pete's Chocolate Co. grew into what it is today. We pride ourselves on the care with which we select our ingredients and hand-craft our products, insuring that each truffle and spoonful of hot chocolate mix comes out as close to perfect as possible.
As a tiny, independent business who relies on return customers and word-of-mouth promotion, we are extremely grateful to enthusiastic customers like you who love chocolate as much as we do. We are dedicated to providing you with a product that we can be proud of and you can be confident in, with customer service to match. Thank you for your interest in our company, and we hope that whether you've been with us since the beginning or are just finding out about Pete's Chocolate Co., you will enjoy our products just as much as we enjoy making them!
