French Broad Chocolate, Cats at Play Cafe, Chow Chow

ASHEVILLE – A local gourmet chocolate company is preparing to open a new location. A new cat promotion business is on its way. A chef-filled event returns for a four-day race. And local restaurants welcome a new leader.

More chocolate for everyone

The French broadcaster based in Asheville is taking to the streets with its first store out of the hill town.

In the fall, French Broad Chocolate will open at the Ponce City Market in Atlanta. The retailer will be on the first floor of Central Food Hall and will be in good company with neighbors including LaRaya’s Bodega & Five Daughters Bakery.

French Broad Chocolate will open its first location outside of Asheville.  The new site will debut in Atlanta's Ponce City Market in the fall.

French Broad Chocolate is a “bean to bar” craft chocolate company founded in 2006 by Jill Schiffington and Dan Retigan in Asheville. It remains a popular destination for artisan chocolates made directly from cocoa.

“Opening the Ponce City Market has been a dream of ours for many years,” Skeffington said in a news release. “It’s a big milestone, and we’re excited to be part of the food community in Atlanta.”
