Chocolatier Constance Popp
Her artisan chocolate has been presented to Celine Dion, Loreena Mckennitt, Hilary Clinton and Prince Edward. When your clientele includes everyone from rock stars to politicians, word-of-mouth becomes a great source of new business.
The business is Chocolatier Constance Popp, a sophisticated chocolate boutique that opened in December 2007. For owner and chocolatier Constance Menzies it provides the perfect outlet for an entrepreneurial spirit with a need for creative self-expression.
Says Constance, “Originally, I started working with chocolate at home, and busy with another career, I thought the idea of starting a chocolate business seemed too farfetched. In addition to figuring out how to put a business together, I searched the country for the best place to learn chocolate and ultimately went to a school in Montreal where I took a series of courses over three years. Then I headed to Chicago and Belgium. As a chocolatier, I’ve created our own signature style both for our shop and for a range of clients and shops”.
Now located on Provencher Boulevard in the heart of Winnipeg’s French Quarter, Constance has added cakes, pastries, frozen treats and chocolate drinks to her repertoire and her output is growing all the time.Visit Website
