Founded by chefs Kevin and Laura Toohey in late 2018, Nu Chocolat makes super quality European style chocolate in Burlington. The company uses only the highest grade Fino de Aroma chocolate in its recipes, including farm fresh Vermont cream and other locally-sourced ingredients.
VEDA provided financing to help the Toohey’s purchase equipment and develop a 2,500 square foot retail and production space at 180 Battery Street in Burlington. The Waterfront location has café seating for 12, serves pastries and beverages and even lets customers watch the production process. The Vermont Community Loan Fund also provided financing to the project.
