The dream job. Chocolaterre. Or more precisely Manoli and Frances Kulutbanis came to us with an idea for a chocolate…store? Catalog? On-line mail order? No name at that point but a vague plan for a physical and/or online chocolate presence. They had a loose and interesting business plan, and a Pinterest-like set of visuals that were very appealing.
Our clients had travelled all over the world, looking at tea shops, chocolate stores and unique retail outlets in Asia, Paris, London and New York. They were open to anything.
