“This has been a long time coming,” said Love. “I’ve always wanted a presence in Naples and the timing is right to expand into a new market.”

According to recent reports, premium chocolate sales have increased in recent years. Consumers are indulging in chocolate on good occasions and bad days and dark chocolate is gaining momentum for its health benefits as a good source of antioxidants.

The new Euro chic retail space, located next to the popular USS Nemo Seafood Restaurant at 3747 Tamiami Trail North, will be a combination of a confection shop and coffee bar. The nearly 1,263-square-foot shop will include a complete selection of NLC ultra-premium, handcrafted artisanal chocolates, pastries, desserts, breakfast bakeries, Italian Gelato, specialty coffees and smoothies.

Founded in 2001 by Norman and Mary Love, Norman Love Confections creates and distributes ultra-premium, handcrafted artisanal chocolates. Based in Fort Myers, the corporate headquarters encompasses both production and retail operations. The Chocolate Salon is a stylish retail shop with an intimate ambience in which customers may purchase chocolates or linger over house-made pastries, gourmet coffees, lattes and smoothies.
