The old analogy of 'my how time flies' resonates clearly for the gang at Marsatta Chocolate. It's been just a little over a year since Marsatta and it's founder, Jeffray D. Gardner were handed their walking papers due to a silly eviction notice then reluctantly placed most of their large chocolate machinery into storage. Smaller machines were now the norm and only taking on the volume that could be handled was an imperative part of the survival plan for this passionate southern California chocolate making company. Wholesale customers were given the bad news that their volume orders would have to be put on hold. Not a great situation to be in for any type of business that seeks success. Although with virtually no wholesale customers to speak of, they chose to continue selling at the local Farmer's Market's believing that it was important to maintain the personable relationships they developed with the local customer. But eventually as time flies so do new opportunities. A small retail/manufacturing location was found and Marsatta Chocolate is now getting very close to moving in. Since it's early beginnings back in the fall of 2003, Marsatta has been always challenged by continued increased demand. With it's recent successful fundraising campaign, backed by some amazing people and organizations, Marsatta Chocolate was able to purchase some state of the art chocolate making equipment. This equipment will meet the challenges that Marsatta has experienced in the past and will position them to once again welcome their wholesale customers along with some additional new retail customers. The time is now for Marsatta Chocolate and they can't wait to open!
