Jacqui Amayo of Danville Chocolates

There may be nothing sweeter than the love you feel when given the gift of Danville Chocolates!

I visited owner Jacqui Amayo to talk about her wonderful shop, how she came to make Danville her home, and all that she loves about Danville and the people who live here.

Danville Chocolates is our hometown chocolate shop specializing in all varieties of chocolates, truffles, caramel apples and freshly dipped fruits. You can pop by the shop any day of the week (yes, they are open every day) to watch them make their delicious chocolates and hand-crafted treats.

Danville Chocolates was founded in 2009 by longtime Danville resident and confectionary industry veteran Terri Vollmer. Jacqui started working at Danville Chocolates in early 2010 and has been an integral part of making it the premier chocolate shop it is today. Jacqui loves this community and it shows in her dedication to this business however, making sensational chocolates and treats for everyone to enjoy is her passion.
