In Their Business


Chocolate Factory returns

After a major facelift and under new ownership, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Cafe has opened at the Outlets at Castle Rock.

The cafe, which had been closed since April 2018, reopened in December and is the first Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store in the United States to feature a cafe concept.

“When we were given this opportunity, we absolutely had to take it. It was an easy decision,” co-owner Brianna Blaylock said in a news release. “We’re so passionate about what Rocky does and what they stand for and we can’t wait for people to come hang out in the café and see that for themselves.”

The store reopened Dec. 21, but its official grand opening is Jan. 29. This event will feature a 150-pound fudge mountain, and free 12-ounce coffee will be given out with any purchase.

“What an honor,” owner and founder Andy Bell said in a news release. “We cannot be more thrilled for the recognition our owners earned by being ranked first in our category. It’s so gratifying to see the efforts our owners deliver to our customers day in and day out rewarded by those they are serving.”
