Well-known pastry chef and chocolatier, Dorothy Mercier, approached us to create an ecommerce site for her business, Didi’s Chocolates.
Until this point, Didi’s Chocolates has been a small business that sells their chocolate confections to local Bucks County gourmet grocers. Recently Didi decided to expand.

TimThumb – It’s our another one of our secret weapons of web design and development.
