A creative man with a childhood passion for chocolate and a career with an international chocolate company, Gilbert Johnson had a gleam in his eye. He dreamed of a shop serving all ages with smiles and sweet treats, where chocolate could become a complete entertainment experience. To make his dream reality, Gilbert enlisted Eric Shamban and Tino Ramirez as founding fathers and on October 10, 2000, The Chocolate Bar was born. Today, Gilbert's dream is thriving in two locations thanks to loyal customers and exceptional service from enthusiastic and friendly employees.
