Philadelphia, PA - John & Kira's Chocolate Company sprung from a road trip John took around the Northeast in search of innovative concepts in food. A boutique chocolate company seemed like the perfect idea as it was fun, creative and could be mixed with local ingredients such as mint from urban school gardens. We got right to work and launched John and Kira’s in 2002.
Made with the finest ingredients sourced from urban gardens and small family farms around the world. "We met in 1999 at one of Kira’s famed rooftop barbeque parties, where she served risotto and egg cream sodas. John, having spent two years in Italy and three in New York, was quite impressed. Kira was impressed that John was working at her favorite socially responsible restaurant in Philadelphia, The White Dog Café. Our love of food and community is what brought us together and has been the driving force behind the company we created,"
