JACEK Chocolate Couture in Edmonton, AB
People don’t disagree with Jacqueline Jacek when she says that she has one of the best jobs in the world as a ‘Cocoanista’- a chocolate designer. The concept was created when she couldn’t decide whether to become a fashion designer or a chocolatier, so combined the two to create her dream job. JACEK Chocolate Couture was started late in 2009 in a basement in Sherwood Park, and now includes a production facility, three retail boutiques, and an online store.
Jacqueline has been chosen at one of the Top 10 Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Professional Magazine in NYC (2011), the Don Neil Young Entrepreneur of the Year (2011), Strathcona County Business of the Year (2014), Global Woman of Vision (2015), a recipient of the Leaders award by Business in Edmonton Magazine (2015) & Avenue Edmonton’s Top Chocolatier (2016).
