UNITED STATES DEVELOPMENT
Alison Nelson's Chocolate Bar has created dozens of luxury retail destinations in international locations such as Dubai, Qatar, Pakistan and now, Australia. Her investors have committed millions of dollars to expand the brand and procure additional Flagship locations around the globe. Now, owner Alison Nelson knows it is only a matter of time before a domestic partnership develops and procures the U.S.A territory to create restaurants in major cities like Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago. Her vision however remains steadfast; to create a new state-of-the-art chocolate factory and baking facility which houses a retail component in a high-traffic, touristic area of New York City. Mirroring the boutiques overseas it will include a restaurant, premium cocoa lounge, and groundbreaking beverage bar while servicing the international needs of the brand by way of experimentation through new recipes and designs thereby significantly increasing the profit margins of internet, wholesale, retail and future franchise sales.
The Saif Belhasa Group of Companies, Chocolate Bar's brand partners in Dubai, recently announced plans to expand its restaurant division with newly signed outlets. The Al Jadaf-based group of companies holds the Gulf franchise rights to the Alison Nelson Chocolate Bar, operating two outlets in The Dubai Mall, and one each in Mercato Mall, Mirdif City Centre, WTC, The Pearl Qatar and Pakistan. The firm has already signed deals to open the franchise in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and is also planning to launch soon in Kuwait. Visit www.chocolatebarnyc.com
