Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
The oldest specialty chocolate factory in Nashville, Colts Chocolates, is celebrating the opening of their first retail location in “The Gulch”, one of the city’s most prolific and rapidly growing downtown districts. To mark the happy occasion Colts Chocolates commissioned a mural to grace the outside of their factory walls. The mural was completed in early spring and the in-factory retail storefront will be open to the public just in time for the warm summer weather.
Colts Chocolates has been a staple of downtown Nashville for more than 29 years. As the city has flourished into a cultural center attracting visitors from all across the nation, Colts decided it was time to highlight their central downtown location. Located in Nashville’s downtown Gulch district, Colts is fully prepared to embrace the progressive nature of their longtime home.
“The retail portion of our factory has actually been in around for over a year,” remarked Colts Chocolates Director of Sales and Customer Service Adrienne Dionne. “The Gulch has become a recognizable piece of Nashville’s hip and progressive culture and we want to be a more visual part of this growing community.”
Colts Chocolates owner Mackenzie Colt believes this will be a great addition to The Gulch’s many diverse and attractive retail locations. “There are several excellent restaurants and some beautiful examples of modern residential and commercial architecture in this area,” added Colt. “This area attracts a lot of foot traffic from local residents and visitors alike. As a locally made product, we wanted to be available to all of Nashville…residents and visitors.”
While Colts Chocolates has been mainly positioned themselves as a wholesale chocolate company, shoppers who visit the factory retail store will now be able to choose from their entire selection of delicious chocolates and desserts.
Visitors will be able to see where everything is being made and have the chance to buy directly from the source. The retail store opens Saturday, May 11 with plans to be open for operation every weekend going forward. As the oldest specialty chocolate factory in Nashville, Colts is hoping to become a “must see” for all.
