Master Chocolatier Jean-Marie Auboine Announces First Retail Shop in Las Vegas

Their plan to expand into their first retail location by Spring of 2016!

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – December 01, 2015 – Jean-Marie Auboine Chocolatier is an artisan handmade chocolate company, creating unique and luxurious chocolates and confections. Currently, they manufacture their chocolates inside of their local Las Vegas factory. Everything is made purely and naturally from scratch. There are no preservatives added and no artificial ingredients. With more than 20 years of experience, Master Chocolatier and Chef, Jean-Marie Auboine, began the company in February 2012, after leaving the Bellagio hotel as Executive Pastry Chef. He’s earned remarkable awards and achievements including the finalist Meilleurs Ouvrier de France Chocolatier 2007 and 2011. One of the Ten Best Pastry Chefs in America 2012 and Top 5 in the 2005 World Chocolate Masters. Jean-Marie is highly respected by fellow chefs and chocolatiers in the industry, throughout the world. Due to the hard work and dedication of Jean-Marie and his team, JMA Chocolates serves many recognizable brand named customers throughout America, on a wholesale level, working with names like Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton’s, MGM Resorts, and many more. Now, it is their hope and plan to expand into their first retail location by Spring of 2016! 

They are currently selling to retail customers through their website and are soon launching products on Amazon. They also sell retail to their walk-in customers who visit the factory and company offices. With a large scale of visitors coming to Las Vegas, their chocolates in the right retail location can provide gifting and souvenir options for both locals and travelers seeking to bring home an innovative and luxurious “piece of Vegas”. A retail location would also offer a place for visiting, sampling and market testing, as well as direct feedback from their customers. However, before they can open their first retail location, Jean-Marie Auboine Chocolatier needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $65,000 by December 18, 2015. The raised funds will be allocated for cocoa beans purchased directly from the farmers, to create a completely new handcrafted line. Funds will also be used to create 37 bar flavors and a unique hundred-piece chocolate box. Accomplishing these three projects will complete their retail line, and will take them to the next level when opening their first retail store in 2016. 

To help bring this incredible chocolate retail store to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between December 2015 and January 2016. 

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Jean-Marie reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
