All About Us

Our Story

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.
