Ed Patterson founded Patterson Family Chocolates three years ago and his business is thriving. Ed, always smiling, has been nominated for the “Small Business of the Year.” Approaching his third holiday season, he is gearing up for a stellar year. As Ed indicated to me, “you can get a taste of royalty for far less than you think.” He is offering a twelve (12) piece of truffles for as little as $15! Patterson is very conscious of marketing and packaging and presents his delicacies with the art and expertise of the high-end European imports.
This year he has added chocolate medallions for businesses to distribute to potential clients. For a very inexpensive price, he will manufacture a colorful chocolate medallion, available in silver and gold, and engrave your company logo on the backside of the medallion. As Ed cited, “presentation is everything” and “chocolate makes everyone smile.”
Ed is quick to report the benefits derived from chocolate. He points out in itself is not fattening, the plant fat is good cholesterol. The sugar additives are where the calories lie. As with everything in life, enforce moderation and you will not have weight problems. “It’s all about attitude, and chocolate promotes that, it has a positive affect and universal connection,” states Ed. “When someone is positive they exude a disposition that most people are attracted to.” “What we are trying to accomplish is good chocolate, good attitudes and many smiles which will rise above the mediocre candy industry.”
Ed’s goal is to make a million people smile. It should be an easy task for the “candy man.” I cannot think of anyone frowning when a beautifully wrapped truffle is given to them. The magic of Patterson’s Family Chocolates will always make you smile….
