Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 05, 2016
SPAGnVOLA® Chocolatier is once again expanding its efforts to capture the hearts and palates of chocolate lovers with our exquisite award winning hand-made chocolates. The new location is at 2000 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC, home to a wide range of eateries, stores and services in the heart of Foggy Bottom and surrounded by The George Washington University, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund.
SPAGnVOLA® opened its original boutique and factory in 2011 within the Kentlands community of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Posed to become a world-class chocolate maker, SPAGnVOLA® was recently named one of the Top 10: World’s BEST Chocolate Shops by National Geographic Traveler http://www.nationalgeographic.com/travel/top-10/worlds-best-chocolate-shops/. SPAGnVOLA continues to expand its reach now to Washington, DC, while offering connoisseurs exquisite dark chocolate from a single-estate.
With its opening on November 23, 2016, SPAGnVOLA is organizing a highly-anticipated Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in January 2017. This third location is SPAGnVOLA's only Washington DC location and eager to turn it into a chocolate destination for Washington, DC.
In view of this illustrious opening, Eric Reid, CEO and Founder of SPAGnVOLA® states, “The world’s best chocolate is now being offered in Washington, DC. This expansion will allow us the opportunity to serve millions of local and international tourists while offering greater exposure for our business organically. Our focus is to elevate the SPAGnVOLA® brand to become one of the most sought-after ultra-premium chocolate in the Washington, DC area. We are humbled by this opportunity to serve our community, and most importantly, we are extremely grateful to The George Washington University for their trust and partnership.”
“We are thrilled that SPAGnVOLA has chosen 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue as the home of its newest store. We continue to work to attract new high quality merchants with first-class products to the building to enhance the services available to nearby workers and residents, the university community and the neighborhood at large,” said Alicia Knight, Senior Associate Vice President of Operations, The George Washington University. “SPAGnVOLA is a fine example of the high quality offerings we seek to bring to this prime location on Pennsylvania Avenue.”
OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
SPAGnVOLA’s foundation is built on corporate social responsibility, with a focus on shared-value throughout its business lifecycle. “We are committed to the communities that we serve, and we can’t think of a better place than the Shops at 2000 PENN for expanding our brand,” said Eric Reid.

OUR SINGLE-ESTATE CACAO FARM
SPAGnVOLA’s exquisite chocolate is grown on a private estate of 450-acres in the Dominican Republic and is owned by Eric and Crisoire Reid. The Reids cultivate and harvest heirloom quality cacao beans to be fermented, dried, and shipped to SPAGnVOLA’s own manufacturing facility in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
As Head Chocolatier, Crisoire Reid creates exquisite, artisan truffles and bonbons resembling fine jewelry. In addition to serving some of the best chocolate in the Washington-Metropolitan area, free factory tours are offered on weekends along with chocolate-making classes, birthday parties and private events.
SPAGnVOLA® is a premium chocolate brand and boutique (pronounced as spang – vola, meaning Hispaniola in Creole). The name refers to the island on which the Dominican Republic is located. SPAGnVOLA® is not merely the name of an enterprise, but it is also a name that honors the land, the people, and the cultures of the owners, Eric and Crisoire Reid.
SPAGnVOLA® premium chocolates are used by Head Chocolatier, Crisoire Reid, to create artfully crafted bonbons and truffles. The result is the most aromatic and savory chocolate artwork in the world. These edible gems not only capture the eye, but overwhelm the palate with a never-ending desire for more. Visit us at http://www.spagnvola.com
