“What drew you to this particular profession?”

by Dustin Vance

“Initially, it was just a way to make money back in my High School days. However, it wasn’t long before I began to fall in love with the profession. As I became more and more involved, my passion for hand-crafting chocolates only grew stronger. Watching the faces of our customers when they try our award winning Sea-Salt Carmel for the first time, or bite into our Hazelnut Praline ganache filled ‘Kraken’ Truffle definitely makes all the tedious man hours preparing those pieces with it.”

“Aside from feeding people chocolates and bestowing ‘mouthgasms’ on dozens, (You would be astounded to find out how many times we hear that word!), I think the business aspect is just as interesting. I have been incredibly fortunate to have assembled such an outstanding staff and managing these people and being a part of the team effort to succeed is an amazing feeling. Sure, the business can get dirty and there are always jobs that need to be done; jobs that are not as glamorous as others but I have been our maintenance man, the delivery boy and just about every other position we have here but it is all worth it to be able to stand behind the name Dorinda’s Chocolates and feel the sense of pride that I do.”
