All About Us
Sisters Frances and Ginger Park were carefree young women when the sudden death of their father turned their world upside down. Reeling from the loss, they turned to each other - and the comfort of good chocolate - to numb their pain as they tried to figure out a way to create a shared future. The answer turned out to be as simple as their childhood dream: open a chocolate shop.
In January 1984, Chocolate Chocolate opened its doors in downtown Washington, DC.
Soon thereafter, Ginger's husband Skip became a part of the chocolate dream. Over time, the CC family grew with the wondrous Estelle, Koomo, Justin, & Marge.
And the rest is chocolate history.
While Skip takes care of CC behind-the-scenes business, The Park Sisters are busy writing - yes, they're not only chocoholics, but award-winning authors too! Their collection of published books include a chocolate memoir, a food allergy cookbook, personal essays, short fiction & numerous children's books. All books are discounted & autographed for CC customers.
