Utah-made Solstice Chocolate available in Harmons
For more than a decade, Scott Querry, a Salt Lake City air-traffic controller, made chocolate in his home kitchen.
This summer — after prompting from his 16-year-old daughter who needed a job — he began selling his small-batch organic offerings at gourmet food shops and farmers markets.
Querry's company reaches another milestone this week as his Solstice Chocolate bars will be available at all 17 Harmons Grocery store in Utah beginning Tuesday, Nov. 12. Querry said he will go from making 20 pounds of artisan chocolate a week to about 100 pounds a week.
Solstice Chocolate makes four chocolate varieties from imported beans: Madagascar, Peru, Bolivia and Venezuela. It also offers a fifth bar, called Wasatch Blend, using beans with several different orgins.
Each 2.5 ounce bar sell for $7.99.
Besides Harmons, Solstice Chocolate also is available at Caputo's Market and Deli, Liberty Heights Fresh and NoBrow Coffee, all in Salt Lake City.
