How Bellafina Chocolate Makes a Sweet Difference
Bellafina Chocolates in Kingsport makes gourmet truffles that won’t leave you feeling guilty – the company donates all of its profits to children’s charities. “We have the audacious goal to create a company that can write million dollar checks to charity and can continue doing so long after I’m gone,” founder and president Brenda Barnicki says.
With a staff of mostly volunteers, Bellafina crafts its artisan chocolates fresh to order using natural and locally grown ingredients, including some from the garden just outside the shop.
“You can really taste the difference,” Barnicki says.
The confectionery ships its decadent chocolates across the U.S. year round and specializes in customized corporate and personal gifts. Shop for Bellafina Chocolates at 123 Cherokee St. in Kingsport. To learn more, visit bellafinachocolates.com or call (423) 292-2271.
