We were faced with a choice between putting the brakes on further sales growth or investing in a larger, more efficient plant

Totally Chocolate, a producer of custom chocolate products, will break ground in December for a state-of-the-art 60,000 square-foot factory. The new plant will more than double the company’s existing manufacturing space and will begin operation in early summer 2006.

According to Jeff Robinson, Totally Chocolate’s founder and CEO, demand for its custom chocolate bars and other business promotional items has skyrocketed over the past three years, stretching the current manufacturing facility to capacity limits. This year, Totally Chocolate will deliver over one million pounds of custom chocolate gifts – the largest amount of product in its history.

“We were faced with a choice between putting the brakes on further sales growth or investing in a larger, more efficient plant,” stated Robinson. “Continued strong customer demand made an excellent business case for expansion.”

Totally Chocolate’s existing manufacturing plant will be leased or sold, possibly to another food manufacturer.
